I put a similar one in the October thread but I thought the weaverbird posed better for this one

I see someone's managed to use what I've emptied from my shredder, that's what I call recycling!

This is the part of Richmond Park I only discovered last week as it's through a little gate you don't tend to notice.

SOTHC - Great pictures of the Weaverbird, you've captured him brilliantly.




In honour of Satguru achieving the near impossible feat today of 100 Crystal Ball victories I thought a Red Arrows fly past was in order. Well Played Satguru :-)

Viewed through a eucalyptus haze from Boroka Lookout, Grampians National Park.
This is the Fyans Creek Valley. The creek has been dammed to form Lake Bellfield, important for irrigation in the region.
Halls Gap nestles down in the valley.

I like these roads where you can see all the way down them. This is in Sudbury in case anyone else actually knows where that is.

I hope you are putting one of your shots in the 'Autumn' thread Strum!
Dave who on earth would not know where Sudbury is?

The loss of an hour in the evenings has left me taking photos in the dark.

Great photos everyone.

You are laid up for a while unable to do any gardening and the weeds take over. I thought triffids were fictitious.

Australian wildflower, Calectasia (Blue Tinsel Lily).
The petals have a metallic sheen.

Quite right Ren, besides not being the one in Canada which the internet tends to mix it up with it has four stations so must be pretty important for that. Here is the John Lyon roundabout the road leads to. Just a typical view of what is still considered as Middlesex, between Wembley and Harrow, which grew up in the 30s as industry began to spring up to the west of London.

Beautiful photos, everyone!

Precious has been missing going walkies whilst I've been laid up. This is from a few weeks ago, but I'm almost better so she'll soon get her harness on again and drag me out in the rain!

A Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo grazing by a creek. These birds tear up small plants by the roots, so are an unwelcome sight in large flocks on cropland.

Wonderful photos everyone, Liz I love that shot of your cat :-)



Well I could explain why I spent an hour this evening taking photos of bears, but some things are just best left to the imagination.

I have just learnt our red leaves are due to a warm autumn. And it continues!
