The Horned Dungbeetle can pull up to 1141 times

its own body weight which is the equivalent of

an average man lifting two fully-laden

18-wheeler trucks.

 

Baby Elephant is the one that gets me smiling.

It was definitely telling us where to go

with its newfound trunk control.

 

Our resident New Holland Honeyeater mum (I think) was

giving me a right telling off when I captured this image.

Since then, and more likely,

I think she may have been talking

to wayward offspring.

This little one is our adored granddaughter.

She only has around nine weeks before

she will have to share the limelight with a sibling.

Another 8 weeks thereafter she will

have a cousin…all being well in both camps.

The land in the background is now covered by Blue Gums.

These eucalypts are the same species as the

two furthermost specimen trees of the triangle.

jade

a hard, typically green stone used
for ornaments and implements
and consisting of the minerals
jadeite or nephrite.
 
 

~~~~~~

Maybe a bit too bright for jade…

 

…especially when compared to

the solid green of clover.

 

Moss on stone.

 

Nothing like the sea for hues

of blues and greens…

 

…and I just love the colour

in the top of this photo.

I think the top third of this image

fits the teal-turquoise theme.

  However, I am never certain about colours,

particularly these.

A split rock at Lekhubu Island,

Botswana.

 

Layer upon layer of limestone rock supports

Victoria’s,

Great Ocean Road.

 

By the time I read of these rock stacks along

Victoria’s Great Ocean Road

I’m sure many of the tourists who had created

them had returned and knocked down

their creation.

 
 
 
 
 

Balancing rocks in South Africa’s,

Kruger or Greater Kruger National Park.

 

Decorative rocks at the edge of

Warrnambool’s tourist lake,

Lake Pertobe.

 

Closer to home…in fact nearly at our back door…

well, about 10 km away…

…is Dog Rocks.

 

If I have asked why it’s called Dog Rocks,

I have not received a satisfactory answer. 

 

Dog Rocks is very popular with photography enthusiasts,

for both day and night photography

as it is far enough away from city lights

that no ambient light can intefer.

 

My final rock is/was Ayres Rock.

It is now known as Uluru.

Climbing Ayres Rock was almost mandatory in 1975. 

Over my left shoulder is another formation

known as The Olgas. 

Both are well worth visiting.
