This little guy has been visiting my backyard for quite a while now, I have a water feature that he rather enjoys every night.
The motorbike frog is a frog well known in Southwest Australia. It is a ground-dwelling tree frog of the family Hylidae, one of only three species of hylids occurring in that region. Its common name comes from the male frog’s mating call, which sounds similar to a motorbike changing up through gears; it is also known as Moore’s frog, the western bell frog, western green and golden bell frog, and western green tree frog.
We always love Halloween and we were lucky to have heaps of children and adults come to our house this year. Can’t wait for next year.
To wander through the sweeping corridors and grand rooms of Longleat House is to be transported back in time. Exploring this stunning example of high Elizabethan architecture – and the Capability Brown landscaped grounds surrounding it – is a day out in itself. It was substantially completed by Sir John Thynne in 1580. And today, his descendants are still lucky enough to call it their home.
While visiting Busselton, Western Australia, friends & I stumbled upon “The Shed” market place and wow, wonderful atmosphere, people, produce and food. Not a place to be missed when next visiting Busselton.
(The Shed is a regional market which is located in the heart of the South West of Western Australia. Predominately a produce market incorporating ‘Eat Street’ international food fare and a regular pop-up craft market. The market promotes sustainable farming and supports local farmers, food producers, artisans, creators and makers. )
Still having a play with my new light box. This photo was for a photo challenge, called Black and Yellow. I’m not normally a big fan of posed photography, but it’s always good to have a play and experiment with new things.
We do love Halloween in our house. Once a year we get to dress up, hand out goodies and scare people. All in good fun.
