  • Thanks for the comments, Andrew, WN, Rich and KB - and also for sharing your images further down this thread. We currently have a friend from NYC staying with us, so I'm aware of the current ...
  • .. it's high summer here, so here's a bit of color, if not originality. You can return the favor in 6 months! Too busy gorging to wipe its beak Rick
  • Thanks for pointing that detail out - I nearly missed it. It is a nice image, and I nearly added my latest WCU post immdediately after it, instead of on this week's WCU thread, because your non-bug ...

    If so it looks just as good second time around! Rick
  • Thanks for the heads up, KB - I'll be there next week and it's good to know what I'll be handling! Rick

    Brad, that's a really beautiful image, and sharp. Rick
  • At least I'm pretty sure that's what it is. About 6 mm long. I was able to get pretty close, but discovered that the flash seems to kill a lot of the blue iridescence. This was taken at about the ...
  • That's a nice capture! I'm pretty sure it's a damselfly - like a skinny dragonfly - although at 2 cms it's a bit shorter than most of the ones I see around here, and I couldn't tell you the ...
  • I particularly liked the gourd and the berries - seems to me you're doing a good job with not much local material to work with. But.. give it 3 months or so and the opportunities will flip to the ...
  • A nice finale to your series - and thanks for sharing it! Rick
  • A spectacular set, Peter. The lighting on cocky #1 is really special. Rick
  • A good set, Dicky. That friarbird really had the hump about the weather - not that I blame it! You've managed to get a better shot of the fantail than I've achieved - don't see them very often and ...
  • Rich, that's 3 remarkable photos! And a pretty special cat (have you posted on the cat thread?) Of the cats we've had, my guess is that a couple would have tolerated the snake, and one absolutely ...
  • Especially like #2 - a great shot!
  • Replied in Last week..
    .. I went to the White Rabbit gallery in Sydney, which I highly recommend to anyone that way. (It features contemporary Chinese art purchased by the Neilson family; the works on display are ...

    Thanks Rich, that's good advice! Rick
  • Remarkable photos of a most unusual combination, Rich. Usually one ends up inside the other - the snake inside the cat when it was small enough to look like a lizard, or the reverse when they are ...

    Frangipani are pretty hardy, Andrew. My late father-in-law liked to tell the story of how as boys he and his brother had to mow his parents' lawn every week or two. In the middle of the lawn was a ...

    .. since I have a few from this month. Dahlia - I like the color and the single petal set of this variety. The tea-tree at the front is in full flower, usually with a number of insects buzzing around.
  • Great shot!
