After spending time writing about this photo, it turns out the writing did not save and I got a double photo! My internet connection is still terrible. Try, try again…
I looked out my window during Oswald’s high winds and lashing rain to see these two Rainbow Lorikeets huddled together trying desperately to bunker down and make it through the storm. Two more were farther up within the leaves.
This week’s photo challenge was ideal. We have had so many storms, in all forms, all over the world, and it is truly the love and kindness of others that has made all the difference when disaster strikes.
Humans, however, are not the only ones to demonstrate love. These two were so sweet. When my internet connection is better I will add more photos of this loving couple.
I took this photo at night. With all the movement in the tree from the wind and the miner birds settling in to roost, it was the only shot that was clear enough to keep. Look beyond the dark, look beyond the leaves. How many miner birds can you see?
I took this photo a while ago for a fun photo competition and then later used it for the header of my other blog, Pictures of Creative Minds, but for me it represents illumination. I used a tripod, played with the settings on my camera in manual mode and used a torch/flash light to create the illumination for the apple and lizard. I hope it will make you ponder a little.
The heat here has been so intense (around 40C with humidity in the 70% range) and I surpassed my monthly gig allowance so my internet connection was too slow to upload a photo or do much of anything! I hope all will return to normal now.
I’m resolved to come out of my safe place more often and live a little this year. I thought the skink represented that pretty well.
