Was little Taji whispering that a camera

was pointed in their direction?

Scales on our friendly…

 

 

Blue Tongue Lizard.

It has  been living under oour front verandah.

However,  hasn’t been sighted for a while,

Although our neighbour speaks of a

Blue Tongue living near his shed.

 

A few years back Candi was barking

madly at this dead snake.

Either I ran over it while cutting grass or a predator

had dropped it from a great height.

 

 

 

My first thought upon seeing the week’s challenge.

My first image is a repost from last week.

This week, not just bright,

but bright sunshine.

 

 

Sunshine reflecting off the cargo vessel as it manoeuvres

for parking at North Shore.

 

Although the sun is behind the tree

it is still shines fiercely.

While we were only inside for a few minutes,

the forty below room did not feel that cold.

While the signed maintained it was 40 below,

the temperature reading was only

a little over 20 degrees below.
