Rainbow Lotikeets are an absolute delight and I never tire of watching them.

Alexandra Palm

The red colour caught my eye on these Alexandra Palms (Archontophoenic Alexandrae), but more so when the early morning sunlight was on them.

Advice from a palm tree: Reach high. Stand tall and proud. Soak up the sun. Be flexible. Find your oasis. Weather life’s storms. ~ Anon

Dinosaurs may be extinct from the face of the planet, but they are alive and well in our imaginations. ~ Steve Miller

(At the Reptile Park): We were grateful that the live spiders were behind glass but the shedded exoskeletons looked equally as scary. The enlarged plastic spider on the right clearly shows the markings.

A spiders web is stronger than it looks. Although it is made of thin, delicate strands, the web is not easily broken. ~ E B White (Charlotte’s Web)

We saw the turtles and even one standing upright. There were a variety of frogs and I was amazed my photos managed to capture their striking colours and markings.

Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out. ~ James Bryant Conant

We think too small, like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view. ~ Mao Zedong


For some reason, I like the look of this lone purple and white agapanthus with the backdrop of greenery and the tufts of dried grass in the foreground. The fact that it’s leaning and not straight, gives what I managed to capture, a sense of authenticity, n’cest pas!

A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is photographed. ~ Ansel Adams

Pride of Madeira

I literally stopped in my track, when I spotted these purple-blue flowers. I discovered later when I looked at my photo, that I had inadvertently managed to capture the sunlight streaming down over the flowers. Lucky me!

I learnt something new today! If you look closely, you will see a fox 🦊 on the beak of the duck.

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

Southern Magnolia

I managed to capture these magnificent magnolias in their various stages of bloom.

What a delight it is to see the bees enjoying the nectar!

There’s going to be this fake illusion that once you get there – wherever ‘there’ is for you – you’ll be happy. But that’s just not life. If you can’t find happiness in the ugliness, you’re not going to find it in beauty, either. ~ Joanna Gaines The Magnolia Story
