Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Wildlife. The most common wildlife around here, of course, is the kangaroo. All these fellows are from my blog photo archives.

The male gray kangaroo in the next images was inside our yard, 2016.  Now that the grass has really dried right off in the paddocks, I notice the ‘roo droppings getting closer to the house.

Next, the kangaroo fence in a nearby street. Each cast concrete kangaroo has coloured marbles for eyes. ( Nokia Lumia 520 window phone).

So here I am again already, before time slips away. The new series for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge are Things of Nature – and here I was expecting one with only birds, with tricky prompts like a bird with four colours, or must have six birds in a row.  LOL. I have no idea why I thought that.

Anyway, for Fun Fotos, I present you my seagull pics taken at Kingston S.E., South Australia, a week or so ago. We spent two nights at their RV Park, no facilities except a nearby public toilet and beach shower. This pretty spot, by the jetty, was only $10 for a maximum stay of 48 hours. This is the town with the giant crayfish. Sadly, the sculpture has shrunk with familiarity, not helped by the trees near it having grown.

Seagulls are always a lot of fun to photograph. They can be sedate, or raucous. These sprang into action when a fellow, seeing saw me taking photos, stirred them by throwing bread closer and closer to me. It started to get a bit Hitchcock-ish, so I was glad when he drove off! Still, I got some great shots. (Nikon D3000)

I’m too late, really, for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Z – being the final word in this series of fun photo prompts. However, I did take these photos of Vika especially for this challenge: Letter Z anywhere in the word or people or animals catching some Zzz’s…

Taken with the Nikon D3000, at Brighton Holiday Park, South Australia, where – like all caravan parks – she was required to be on a leash at all times. The only time it came off was when she put herself to bed in the camper, and while we were travelling – and for the few hours a day we visited my mum over the week in Brighton. Some people had doggy playpens, and we’ll probably invest in one of those for the future. Vika is 16, and she was rapt when we arrived home, a week ago. She didn’t think much of the sea and didn’t volunteer to swim, being more interested in menacing other dogs, no matter their size. She slept well each night, worn out.

 

Soon, Cee begins a new Fun Foto Challenge based on BIRDS! I can’t wait for her first prompt.

This week the topic for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Letter W – Needs to start with W and have two vowels in the word.  I was worried that finding appropriate images was going to be hard, but once I started, I couldn’t stop seeing W words with vowels. Here we go…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter U – Needs to have the letters O and U in the word …

On the first of our camping trips, last year, I spotted this Horsfield’s Bronze-Cuckoo.

Another first for me, not having seen one before.

Lucky I took the photos (Nikon D3000), for it was not about the next day.

Sized around 17cm, this Australian cuckoo has awesome metallic colouring. It parasites the dome-shaped nests of the fairywren and thornbill, laying just one egg.
