Little Critters




 Superb Blue Wren (male)







Juvenile male Scarlet Honeyeater



Mature Scarlet Honeyeater (a second one in the background)





Just a few of the smaller critters which have frequented our garden over the last few days.....much nicer than anything I could possibly create with my own hands.

Beautiful shots those shots of butterflies - wow! I can feel the anxiety about the fires - I remember one been stuck in a national park foe a day waiting for the fires to pass. I hope people stay safe.

Seeing Each Day said...

I would love and at the same time, not love to be on a judging panel if these photos were in a competition. I would love to comment on each one at length, but would not love to choose a winner. Thanks for all these special captures (and no creepy ones too has helped). Hope you're going ok, Renee.

Stephanie Jefferson said...

Wow these are lovely. My favorite would be the scarlet honeyeater.

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Thank you Stephanie. Unfortunately I can't comment on your blog as I don't have a google+ profile......
