See River's Sunday Selections. Maybe Elephant's Child will have one and perhaps Jackie.
Slim pickings this week. I do have some other photos to post over the coming week though. I may have a a different attitude to magpies if I had been swooped by one, but I never have. I like them a lot. I will post some more about them one day as they are nothing like the European magpie.
I did once say I would not post any more balloon photos, but there of couse must be an exception and it was a balloon newsy week. I am sure there were nine balloons but I can only see eight in the photo. This is the most I have ever seen in one morning. Melbourne is one of the few cities in the world where balloon flights take place over the city, because our airport is quite a distance out and morning breezes are quite calm.
Monday last week two balloons were not too far away and heading directly for our building. I snapped away as they came closer and they came as close as any have ever, and sailed straight over the top of our building. I snapped away but in my haste the camera did not focus properly so this is the best I can do when one was still a distance away.
The next day, well, a balloon landed in someone's small front garden. See a picture here.
I don't remember sleeping with the door or windows open yet this large moth managed to get in. I thought it was an Emperor Gum Moth, but I think it is too dark. He/she died a day later. It was big.
Australia Day has been and gone and there is always a large display of old cars at the King's Domain for the public to ooh and aah over. Here are a couple heading towards the gardens. I had to work, otherwise I would have gone to see them.
Four days of 40 degree heat and then a few days later our distressed elms and plane trees had a massive leaf drop. It was like Autumn. There are still plenty of leaves left to fall in Autumn.
