Backyard Frog

DSCN2415DSCN2422 (3)DSCN2420 (3)DSCN2419 (3)DSCN2422This 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.

Helping

To see the very young helping the very old is a true pleasure, even with something as simple as threading a sewing needle. We all need help at times, no matter what our age.

Cows & A Bull

Some of these photos were taken whilst I was on holiday in the UK, ( I was using a different camera)  I was staying in a beautiful rural area named “Laverton” while taking glorious country walks I would come across these beautiful cow’s every day & they would come up to the fence to say hello. The bull was also very friendly & very noisy. I can’t help but see only sadness in these cows eyes.

Charlie

“CHARLIE” was found in a cardboard box with his sister Loala, at the end of a street. Dumped, not wanted. They were about 6 weeks old. They were both taken in by a loving family, given food, shelter & lots of love. He was hit by a car at about 18 months old and had to have major surgery to fix a broken pelvis, he survived & grew strong. He is now 4 years old & an incredible boy, loving with an immense personality.

Unfortunately so many kittens ( & puppies) are dumped, disposed of in numerous ways or killed unnecessarily, it breaks my heart. If only the human race would take more responsibly & have more compassion for everything other than themselves.

We then may live in a better world.dscn8827fscn8842fscn8844fscn8837fscn8843
