I put this photo on my desktop and realized that I could see the fantail's beak
along with the bug it was after. So, I edited it a bit and was surprised
to see its tongue along with all the other bugs it could have chosen!
As Bob Ross would say, it's a happy accident!

Wednesday around the World

This azalea bloom looks quite ordinary until
you realized that it's the second time the bush has
blooms this year! According the the calendar, it's the
middle of autumn but my garden has its own timeline.

So, let us know what's going on in your neck of the woods!
Link up below and share with us what is happening this week.

This lovely hawk posed for a while before flying off.

My Easter surprise at Pukekura Park :)

A pair of yellow admirals have been hanging out at my flower garden.

This is the bloom of my swan plant.

Fantails show up occasionally and this one kept casting a shadow into the house 
the other night so I snapped his/her picture.

Good Random Fun (you pick!)

Here are some coastal images for my northern hemisphere friends who
might need a little warm-me-up :)
