For the duration of this notice, unless otherwise stated, all images have been trawled from my photographic archives... 2020 was not my most prolific camera year, so have some catching up to do!!!

This cage was absolutely chockers with guine pigs, who all wanted to be hand-fed! Found at a little small-holding cum craft-croft in hinterland Queensland.

Saturday Symmetry

As regular viewers will know, I like sometimes to play with the idea of symmetry by showing the flow of pattern which can come from asymmetry.

This delightful water feature in the Northern Suburbs Memorial Gardens (cemetery by any other name) echoes the pencil pines in the background.

Another 'one and only' shot. This was a New Holland honeyeater that my cousin swore blind would show up every day and frequently. Maybe it did. I just wasn't there - except this once!

The QM2 sailing out of Greenock and down past the Hutch's window one night last year. She was moving fast and I am amazed I got any kind of recognisable shot at all!

One of Australia's amazing variety of arachnids. It was busy high in the trees above our heads.

When you can't see 'em for real, take a picture of a picture! This gorgeous mural was on the back wall of the Port Adelaide old town hall and is a depiction, I believe, of the Splendid Fairy-wren. Purists might say 'not accurate' - but it was stunning to stand beside, nonetheless.

Australia is, as you can imagine, alive with Lepidoptera. Some I am quite good at naming. Others, not so much. I believe this to be Argynnia Cyrila (Cyril's Brown). Caught in Emm's garden - she lives in the hills north of Sydney.

Taken through Emm's back window at Mt Colah (Sydney). Wasn't quick enough to get away from the trees to catch the incredible cloud formations that flamed for the briefest moment.

I am not entirely certain why I never made a label for 'doors' until today. I take plenty photos of them.

After all, they can pretty much be relied upon for symmetry - anything less than that is a fault of the photographer! (I am vertically challenged remember - and on this occasion was apparently leaning a bit to the side as well!!!)

As mentioned before, the recent trip down under presented some challenges in getting 'wings' shots - not least because there was hardly any specific outing for the purpose. However, a small nature trail along a beach afforded observation of many of these. So fast, it was a miracle I got this much of an image. Little Wattlebirds. There were dozens. I managed this one paltry shot!

This ship was anchored in the Firth of Forth, just off from Aberlady (East Lothian). Couldn't quite make out the name, but probably waiting to go up to Grangemouth to load oil or petroleum. There was quite some haze it swung around a full 180 degrees as we watched from the warmth of our car!

Last hoorah. This is the final of my shots with water and sailing vessels upon it from the Down Under trip for this season. I would have liked to have obtained more, but... hey ho...

A man-made lake on a Barossa property owned by renowned food writer and television presenter, Maggie Beer, was very clear - and well-populated! Australian short-neck turtles.
