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. On Thursday of this week the morning was foggy and fairly chilly.
We have learnt that a foggy morning often means a bright and beautiful day. And so it was.
Our restrictions are easing now so several hours later we headed down to the lake. A long awaited trip to the lake. It was wonderful (though I could have done without the strange and fairly needy woman who bent my ear albeit at a socially safe distance). Like me, she loves that piece of the lake's foreshore but I was not ready to discuss the meaning of life with a perfect stranger in that beautiful space. I did, however, enjoy being introduced to her canary Chloe. Chloe didn't like the lockdown either, so my new acquaintance took her down to the lake for an outing.
In my usual minimalist fashion quite a lot of photos follow.
An Australian Straw-Necked Ibis which I 'think' are different to bin chickens which are typically our white ibis.
The kangaroos (and there were several mobs) were totally 'laxed and pretty much ignored us.
I am (of course) a fan of both our black swans and the Australasian Darter which had its wings spread to soak up the last of the sun.
This silver gull (often referred to as a seagull) has almost certainly never seen the sea.
It really is a lovely place, and the wildlife is a bonus.
I hope all of you find peace and beauty in the week to come.
