A vibrant morning

I'm always amazed that the same walk on Wednesday morning can always deliver new surprises. This morning I was just taken by: the blue of the sky, the strength of structure of the Satin Bowerbird's bower, bright blossoms and vibrant birds.

I will just share some of the beauty in the sequence I experienced them - apart from the detail of one of the flowers shared above.

No wonder I came home with a smile and lift in my spirit.


  1. Walking the land always leaves me feeling lighter ... but I must say if we had flora and fauna like this, my feet wouldn't be touching the ground for the sheer beauty of it all. Of course, it doesn't hurt a bit that you are a master of iPhoneography ... thank you for that!
