  • Greg, it is so sad when we lose a beloved pet and companion who has been part of the family for so many years. All you can do is hold on to your memories of the fun and love you shared, and as ...
  • Well, wish MAK a happy birthday, and tell her to guard her birthday cake carefully from predatory parrots like the ones monstering my friend here!
  • Having seen the colored image, I think you got your first post pretty much spot on, to make an intriguing object. Rick
  • Yes 3 shots would have been a crowd! Beautiful, especially the first. Rick
  • Steve, they look like this. I'm with Dicky - one of my favourite insects. This is a female. Rick PS Dicky, thanks for identifying the leaf-cutting bee - I have some shots of them but wasn't sure ...
  • Replied in Just a few...
    I see you're still the Iris specialist, Rich - and a lovely one it is, viewed full size. That orange one (gerbera? not sure) also repays a full size view. Keep on getting better (internally that is ...
  • I read your first two pics as a bit of an aquatic tease (think the Beatles "Octopuses' Garden"), and on that basis your labeling those anemones or corals as plants was fine. My response was posted ...
  • The flowers in the first one look more like animals to me... and you've got one more koala than we've ever had in our garden! The shape of the icicles was intriguing - presumably wind sculpture as ...
  • Replied in Leftovers
    Nope, not disappointed - not much you can do if the flowers aren't there! The red berries must be a welcome splash of color at this time of year. Rick
  • Recent weather reports have been full of the wet in SE Qld so you've done well to get this set. I especially liked the bruised rain lilies. Rick
  • Replied in Love it!
  • Replied in Butterflies
    We've had a few through (though nothing like Queensland - supposedly more butterflies there than any time in the last 40 years.) Unfortunately I am not good on butterfly identification, but these ...
  • Thanks Andrew. You're right, half the  joy of some trees is the passing parade of wildlife that they host. Rick
  • Thanks too for your comment! BTW I enjoyed your post too - I really liked that second one of the icy pond and summer house or gazebo. Rick
  • Thanks Coll. The Noisy Miner and other bell miners are not related to what I think is the Myna you are referring to, although they were named after it because of the similar beak color, yellow ...
  • Thanks for your comments, Steve. That flower may have been misleading - the liquid in the cup was more rain than nectar On the leaf-guard, I just wanted to make sure we're understand the same thing ...
  • This is a ti-tree (or tea-tree, melaleuca alternifolia ) - it and its relatives are common in Australia. This particular species has rough bark, and small leaves that bypass most leaf-guards. The ...
  • Thane, I'm another one who has never really tried cricket photography, so I'm eminently qualified ..... It seems to me that it's the fence behind that is in sharp focus, not the players (just look ...
  • A relief - was starting to think something bad might have happened. Looking forward to more pics and opinions (mostly, anyway!) Rick
