Assorted


A biting fly was annoying me as I walked along a fenceline a couple of weeks ago. I paused to photograph this Nephila and the fly blundered into the web! Bonus! You can see that the spider was actually already eating something.





A Rainbow Bee Eater. I've never seen them down in Sydney and have really fallen in love with their colours, voices, flight and tail-feathers (hidden in this shot).

Astonishing beauty captured by amazing photographic skill. Thanks for brightening my day.

David, we used to have annual visits from the Bee Eaters up on the farm (in SE Qld). I miss them terribly now that I live in the big smoke.
