Oh it’s a beautiful evening!
Ah – that feels good.
The gentle routines of taking care of ones self.
But something’s not right.
What is it?
Ah! What’s that behind me?
Come here – out from under my feet!
You can’t get away!!!
No – no you are not getting away!
Ha! I have you now!
What are YOU laughing at!!!!!
The daily Post Challenge: Earth http://<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/earth/”>Earth</a>
the beauties of the earth are many and everywhere – in the very small:
In the tiny & industrious:
in flowers, small:
the beauty of autumn:
to the very large – storm clouds:
and the magnificence of sunsets:
I hope you enjoyed my response to the Weekly Challenge. I am looking forward to viewing yours🙂
It was wet for the last few days. A delight – rain! The rain was persistent, but light, so there wasn’t that much. Enough, however, for gathering raindrops.
Jasmine leaves in light and shadow:
even enhancing a dead leaf:
on jasmine tendrils:
on spider plant flowers and buds and the dangling dead ends:
these could be ear rings! :
on bottlebrush leaves and twigs:
and on leaves of a nameless but much loved potted tree:
Now, if there was more rain….
These are taken of clouds in the eastern sky –
pigeons flocking against the light of storms clouds building at sunset:
the colours are slightly enhanced, the photos ‘noisy’ but I liked the effect:
and teh structure of the clouds was amazing:
and ibis flying against softer clouds to the south-east:
The tea rooms at Matilda Bay have been remodelled and for a while, it seemed that there would be no visits from the birds, but then – some ravens came.
They sat a while in the flame tree:
a couple chatting:
eyeing the pickings below:
they sat in chairs backing onto the river, becoming silhouettes:
calling to others about the food:
walking the fence:
Then it was onto an abandoned table:
is it any good?
shall we use this for chips or something else?
You looking at me???
I love the ravens🙂
the little bottlebrush bush near me has been in flower:
and bees love these flowers:
On that same Friday, in my garden, raindrops be-gemmed things:
lemon grass bejeweled:
tiny Chives flowers:
beautifying a rose past its best:
rose leaves, although munched by a grasshopper, took on extra beauty:
and can you shee him? Sheltering beneath the leaf:
and gleaming on buhenia leaves:
We have had more rain since, so there will be another post or two…
