Tiny Frogs Return

Such a long time since I posted anything, but a good way to begin again is with a favourite subject – some images of Litoria ewingii, Southern Brown Tree Frogs, sitting on Hydrangea leaves just outside my back door in the rain.

These are tiny creatures, less than 2 cms in length, and young ones hatched this season.  The fly just happened to be sitting there………

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Habit

This is a bit boring, but then habits can be that way……..I’m certainly not going to portray any of my less desirable ones!

My early morning habit – breakfast – single Wheetbix and All-bran in the same bowl, tea – English Breakfast in the same spotty mug,  iPad to check emails, read news and see what is new on Zite, specs so I can read it all.

Aquilegia

Aquilegia, Granny’s Bonnet, or Columbine – makes no difference to me, they remain one of my favourite plants and this garden is full of them.  I love their elegant shapes and gorgeous colours.

These were all taken with the 5D and a 100mm macro lens.  Click on any image to make a slideshow.

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Horizon

This week we are asked to feature horizons – the space where sky meets the earth.  For me my favourites are sky over water, but all can be beautiful.  These are from my archives, but I don’t think any have been posted before.  They were taken in the surrounding countryside and in Tasmania last year.

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Saturated

A late afternoon walk in a nearby Botanic Gardens resulted in these heavily saturated images – deep rich greens and browns heightened by recent rains and overcast skies.  It was truly beautiful.  The heavens opened again as we were leaving.
