Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. I am taking you back to Enlighten this week, but we are starting in town rather than in the Parliamentary Triangle. On my way to do my shift at Lifeline I spotted not one but three 'Illuminated Mini Beasts'. The beasts are brightly coloured neon insects, which will remain in the city centre as part of the Enlighten festival.
Starting with the Swallowtail Butterfly.
Then the Neon Cuckoo Bee which is apparently native to Sydney. They rely on other bees to raise their young and lay their eggs in the nests of others.
Finishing up with the Cicada. Apparently this cicada hums when touched, but I went past early in the rain and it refused to sing for me.
It was a very, very busy and draining shift at Lifeline so I was grateful for these colourful treats.
There is still more to come from Enlighten but it can wait for another post.
Keep your fingers crossed for me please. Our Balloon Spectacular started yesterday and I am heading off shortly before dawn (in a couple of hours) in the hopes of seeing them take to the skies.
