Creepy, Crawly, Slimy and Scary
All I had to do today was feed the dog and watch. Down came the Magpies. They perched, just waiting for the chance to steal a bit of food.
This week’s topic reminded me immediately of the cat in, “Red Dwarf” as he leapt in delight from one thing to another shrieking, “Oooh shiny thing, shiny thing.”
Nature provides so many, “Ooh shiny thing” moments for me but I’ve chosen a bird because they are what distract me most often.
… but it could have been Ewww shiny thing, slugs distract me too.
Black and White is the suggestion for this Macro Moments challenge but I can’t bear to remove all the colour.
I was cutting out some Ivy today at an Adelaide city townhouse less than 100 metres from what will be a racetrack on the weekend. I was startled when something flew out of the Ivy and past my face but I’ve a feeling that will be minor compared with the Owl’s experience when the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercars start roaring along East Terrace in 4 days time.
I was hoping to get up close to a little Silvereye for this week’s challenge of “bird” but they wouldn’t cooperate so it’s a Tawny Frogmouth instead.

I was watching a Koala above my head when I was distracted by a rustling and turned to see this one walking past.
