Bees on a Grevillea

I saw this during a recent walk near where I live. There are some bees closer to home so it was nice to see them a little further away. Hopefully it’s a sign of the environmental health of the area … Continue reading

Looming Shadow

One last photo of this skull and flower combination. This is a bit closer to the angle I was trying to get with it and its shadow. It’s not quite what I was hoping for, but I like the combination … Continue reading

Acacia cognata

I suspect that this might be a different type of wattle, but maybe it isn’t. This was taken last month whilst walking around near home. Probably could’ve done a better job with the photo but I like how it turned … Continue reading

A few Prunus x blireana flowers flowering. This was taken in the same pocket of time as these two photos. With this one I thought it was interesting that a bunch of the flowers were clustered in a specific spot … Continue reading

Erythrina crista-galli

It very much has been a long day and I was planning on doing some writing, but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you view it) the need for rest currently supersedes everything else. Instead of writing, here’s what I … Continue reading

Salvia farinacea

My understanding is that this is also known as mealycup sage. This photo was taken at The Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney. I was trying to capture the bee more than the plant, but I think I managed to do … Continue reading

Red and White Hippeastrum

Could be known as an Easter lily, or a red and white belladonna, or a red and white¬†Amaryllis. There are a few names but I’ve been unable to find the specific one for this so I’m using the genus name. … Continue reading
