I almost mixed this Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour. A combination of working nights and a visit from winter. But this afternoon – I went out to look at the flame tree & found not only flame tree flowers but BIRDS! Wattle birds and new holland honey eaters and singing honey eaters, all feeding amongst flowers lit in that magical hour before sunset.
I haven’t posted them all – there are soooo many. I will post more later, and should I apologize for them all?
But first – the last remaining rose in the neighbourhood, lit by the golden light of the sun.
All other roses have been pruned, as have mine. It is now up to the flame trees to provide most of the colour in the neighbourhood. Following are photos of flame tree flowers and wattle birds.
flowers lit with the sun and a new holland honey eater, also caught in the sun:
another new holland, and a flower against the blue sky:
A wattle bird lit by the sun as well as the flowers:
The tree is now just glorious and the wattle birds are taking full advantage:
As are the new holland honey eaters, and the flowers just glowing against the old trunk:
Wattle bird and new holland – they were flying challenges at each other, and the singing honey eaters (none of the latter in this set, later)
Just flowers (though there is a bird in one)
I like these, against the warm wall of a house:
and finally, this chinese tallow, stripped of leaves, made warm in teh last of the golden hour’s light – & with the moon tangled in its branches.
I hope you forgive my indulgence for this week’s Weekly photo Challenge: The Golden Hour.
