One Word Photo Challenge-Hummingbird

~~~~~

My

‘Hummingbird’

is the

New Holland Honey Eater

~~~~

 

No hummingbirds around here,

that I know of, so…

this is the best I could think of…

 was our family of

New Holland Honey Eaters.

This one was rather forthright

in telling me and its young,

where to go.

Weekly-Weather-Hurricane

The closest thing we have to Hurricanes are Whirlwinds,

also known as Willy-Willys.  However, our whirlwinds

while looking like a hurricane or tornado, only last

a few seconds, minutes at most, and are usually

in the open and do little or no damage.


The only experience I have with damage from this

weather phenomenon was in the 1900s or early 2000s.

Note the right hand side of my woolshed roof is

whiter cleaner, newer.

A six foot long sheet of iron was found in a paddock

100 metres away.

I remember thinking it was a pity that the other side

was not damaged as well,

so I could have replaced the whole roof.

It surely needed replacing.

However, we gone a little over two years

after this photo was taken.

Again a fog photo.

Two bollards usually have morning joggers,

fishermen and the occasional photographer

to keep them company.

Not so, that morning.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Words4August

I have chosen three of the words

for this week’s challenge. Probably fair to say the sun had set before I took this shot,

however,

I am sure it was setting somewhere else 🙂

Time 0700 and fog is severely limiting my horizon.


0840 and the view is not much better and

the temperature is -1 Celsius.  

Very cold for this blogger.

 

The Barwon River at Barwon Heads.

The bottom marking  is the 2.1 metre tide level of 1978.

The top marker is ‘extreme tide’.

I do not know if that level has ever been attained.
