Colourful start to 2009
2009 looks gloomy in prospect, so a bit of colour might help give us a lift!
How about a pollen-laden honeybee (Apis mellifera) visiting a Tyto blue lotus today?
Or a Carpenter bee (Xylocopa spp.) leaving a lotus?
Pink and red are always cheering. A dragonfly (Diplacodes haematodes) rests on a lotus.
Must include at least one colourful bird. Comb-crested Jacana (Irediparra gallinacea) does a tip-toe wing stretch on the main lagoon today.
Happy New Year to all of us!
