Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Feathers

~~~~~

Some of my favourite

feathery friends.

Balyang Sanctuary Pelican

Southern Masked Weaver

in Botswana.

One of my treasured photos,

not because it is good rather,

just because I have

a photo of a Wedge Tail Eagle.

They are difficult creatures to photograph.

According to Google

WedgeTail Eagles are one of eleven species

of proper eagles and can grow to more than

half the size of a small car.

Some of my favourite closeups, or crops..

Whilst there is more here than

the challenge requires

‘Percy’ still makes a good subject.

Percy again

Probably my best ‘less is more’ photo.

Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

in the background

and very little else.

 

 

Lunch is down there.

Near Barwon Heads last Friday morning, April 26.

Melbourne’s…

Saint Kilda Pier.

Crop some of the distraction and more focus

is on photographer and model,

completing a tertiary photography assignment.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Bridges

Bridges from all over.

Bridge over Rocky Mountaineer railway.

Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Auckland Harbour Bridge,

by day…

 

…and by night.

The remnants of Misery Creek Bridge.

Was in one piece until

the background tree fell on it.

A new bridge in Botswana’s

Okavango Delta.

One of my all time favourite bridges

from my school days.

The Bridge of Sighs.

Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge.

West Gate again.

I’m starting with the old and ending

with the new this week.

I  love wildlife photography and was overjoyed

to see this Crimson Breasted Roller

on my computer screen.

Crimson Breasted Shrike

in Botswana.

In May, 1974 I did manage a tour of the

interior of Sydney’s Opera House. 

Fascinatingly beautiful was the only way

to describe the interior of that era.

Although an Arabian Desert Sunset

has some appeal for me, all that sand!

It’s everywhere! 🙂

My first time in Melbourne,

after dark and with a camera in hand.

The only editing has been brightening it slightly. 

I have seen many photographers who would

publish it in its original darker state.

Photos from all over.

LIft off at the Maun Airport in Botswana

for our late afternoon flight

over the Okavango Delta.

 

 

Many of our train carriages have

a ‘Made in Victoria’ stencil on the windows,

which has produced a nice shadow

for this image.

 

 

Recently I had a disappointing visit to

Lake Burrumbeet

Probably the wrong time of year

and not much water in it.

 

The highlight of my Lake Burrumbeet visit

was spotting this wallabies head directly

in front of my car.

Not a great shot but best in the time I had,

of it bounding through the

shadows of lakeside trees.

A quick catch up post.

One of the half decent

Wedge Tailed Eagle shots

I have.

 

Next two from our…

2013 African Safari.

The following year we watched as

Southern Masked Weavers

made nests in a tree in a

Botswana shopping centre car park.

The male builds the nest.

The female inspects it and pulls it apart

if it’s not up to her standard.

Male starts all over again.

Hmmmmmmmm!!!!
