Ant’s Nest


Today’s prompt…

Ouch! In my eagerness to capture a photo on my way over I stepped closer to the fence and right on top of this ant’s nest 😦



Creepy Crawlies

Today’s prompt…

These evil-looking caterpillars gather on some of our gum trees. I will have to do some further investigation to find out what they are but they should certainly inspire a horror story or two 😦

Leaping Lizards!

Today’s prompt…

If you look closely you’ll see a little Blue Tongue Lizard among the bark chips. I haven’t seen any lizards here for a while but a very big one used to visit when we were living in our shed waiting for our house to be built. He/she would slide along the floor late at night, making an eerie sound. It gave me a bit of a fright the first time I heard it when I was there by myself but once I discovered what it was it was nice to have a bit of company πŸ™‚Β  I found him in our bathroom (a rather generous name for our primitive shed out the back!)Β one day and was relieved to find that tail sticking out from behind the plastic ‘tub’ was a lizard and not a snake πŸ™‚

A few months back I saw a small Blue Tongue in the garden beside the shed, so perhaps my larger friend was a proud parent.
