Wednesday Wonders

I thought this was a plant when I first saw the photo. It only took one stingray to do in Steve Irwin.


The question arises.........how on earth??


Ah, Aussieland at last. I  think if you fly to or from Bangkok from Melbourne you go over a lot of inland Australian desert and it is quite spectacular to look down at from a plane.

  1. Some stunners today. I don't know which is my favourite. Perhaps the sunset from inside the wave, though I would love to see the rays. I suspect Steve Irwin might have survived if he had resisted his temptation to poke and prod...

    1. EC, at our local Brighton Sea Baths are men and women who swim all year round, often with stingrays swimming among them and no one seems worried.

  3. That sunset through a wave is the best thing I've seen all week. Do you suppose the owner would mind if I copied and printed it for a bookmark?
    The cloud rolls are interesting.

    1. River, I am sure the owner of the photo would be quite flattered. It is photo someone took, but it has so widely spread around the net, how can I give credit? Or you?

  4. When I was living on Newry Island one day as I was wading out to where my boat was moored I got struck on the top of my left foot by a small coral ray..and boy, oh, boy, it sure did hurt, to say the least!!!

    1. Lee, did you step on it? I'd be a cross coral ray too, if you did. Interesting about coral rays.

    1. Victor, just showing the talent of other people whose names have been lost. Still a few to come, but we will soon be away in a week or so.

  7. The surfer must have had a go pro and grabbed a screen shot off the video? Those clouds "rolls" are something else! I used to enjoy Steve Irvin. His wife is a native Oregonian afterall, who loved the big cats when she lived here---Cougars. It's tragic he died the way he did.

    1. Strayer, odd as it may seem, I and many other people had never heard of Steve Irwin until he died. I didn't know his wife was an Oregonian?
