WPC: Farewell Favourites

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.

Huntsman & her eggs

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.

and finally:

Thank you and good bye!

  1. Lovely trio of shots. I fear spiders so seeing that Huntsman up close was a bit petrifying 😀 It is an amazing shot, the spider so protective of the little ones in there. That looked like a fiery Easter sunset, that whole sky ablaze. Sad to see the photo challenge go. I discovered your blog through the challenges 🙂

      1. Between us I’m sure we could think of something. I did ‘Photo of the Week” for almost two years when we travelled around Australia. Not sure I could do that again though.

  2. I’ve just breathed a sigh of relief. When I first started reading I thought you were giving your blog away. Then I realised I was mistaken. No more terrible frights please.
    By the way, wonderful images, an absolute pleasure to view..
