October was unusually cold, wet and miserable with only a few sunny days. These animals visited our place, not all of them are really
“visitors”, some live here all the time, though I don’t usually see them.

For the Weekly Photo Challenge Dad’s old brushes and funnels transmogrify into a garden sculpture.
My “Macro Moment” photo this week is of a native Blue-banded Bee at a Salvia flower.
Crop from an image taken with my Panasonic Lumix, TZ-60 a nice little “point and shoot” with a Leica lens.
Thanks Ceenoa for hosting the Emotography Showcase, it’s been fun participating but I’ve reached the end of the alphabet so that’s it for me.
The challenge this week was to photograph something which caught your eye then seemed to disappear when you moved. My photo is of the shine caused by some oil on a footpath which did just that.
In southern Australia just now it’s Spring rather than “Fall” so these are actually new shoots, not autumn leaves but I think they suit the topic.
The little bug is a Native Cockroach.
Almost my last post for the Emotography Showcase.
This week’s photo challenge topic meant we just had to go to our favourite local cafe where I was compelled to order pancakes with berries and icecream. I make lots of sacrifices to get the photo I want.
Another photo for the Emotography Showcase.
I know there could be a range of emotions associated with this experience or even the thought of it but for my husband the feeling was pure exhilaration.
My contribution this week to the Macro Moments challenge, not bubbles but water droplets on a CD.
