This is all a bit sad and unexpected I have to say, and as 3Rs of Retirement states, you’ll miss us when we’re gone! It’s been a great challenge to ‘have a go’ at and a wonderful community. I’ve really enjoyed taking part over the last couple of years. And so to my favourites.
This was snapped at Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens and is known as Pink Poodle. It’s a Calliandra surinamensis, and I loved the pink detail of the flowers. Detail was the challenge.
This photograph was taken back in October 2006 and although it’s a scary looking Huntsman, it is a beautiful and rare sight to behold. I’d popped outside to put some rubbish in the dustbin, opened back the lid and this was the surprise waiting for me. A female Huntsman who had secured her sac of about two hundred eggs against the side of the bin. She then placed a few loving arms over her precious bundle. Mother Nature at her exquisite best. The challenge was rare.
