Ordinary goodness can make a difference to the world
My favourite photographs from March
My camera has been quietly resting for the last few weeks but I have been out and about on a few days in March this year.
Here are my favourite photographs from March. I really like the contrasts between the brown bleached hills and the lush greens seen in the trees and leaves of other photos. Nature showing so much of its best around or near my home.
The big dry on the Belmont Hills
Early morning at home
Silhouette of a Fantail. A fleeting moment of stillness.
Kereru feasting on Karamu berries ( I think)
The stunning work of a small spider.
This ball of feathers is a fantail preening – so little stillness with these delightful birds
Beautiful shots! Great Blog=)
love those brown hills
We’ve had a little rain since I took that photo but I suspect those hills are still pretty dry.
Oh, the kereru is my favourite, though the brown hills are very impressive, too.
That Kereru was utterly splendid and the setting was magic and so spirit lifting. I’m glad you enjoyed him/her. The light on those hills that day was another great moment. We could do with some rain here in April!
Wishing you more rain. It’s sultry here today.
Despite forecast light rain we have had none. Friday and Saturday were very humid.
You were lucky to get the fantails still long enough for you to take a shot – you gotta be quick with them! 🙂 Can’t get over how brown those hills are – it sure has been a long, hot summer.
Fantails are a trick to photograph….Our big dry continues but maybe rain is coming our way with dark clouds around today.
The spider web shot is my favourite; it’s a beauty. And then the hills.
Thanks Juliet. I thought of you as I was taking photos of the spider’s web. It reminded me of the Labyrinth you walked last week at St Matthew’s church. I loved some of the corners this wee spider had constructed. The hills look a little better now but we still need good soaking rain here. Perhaps today we will get the promised heavy rain after showers.
Especially the hills and your preening fantail. I admire all your bird photos – I can never catch anything feathered, they are always too quick for me.
Thanks for your kind words. Birds are swift and I do get frustrated as I miss getting the image time and again but sometimes patience and perseverance pay off:-) I’m glad you enjoy my bird photos! NZ has some unique and beautiful birds.
