In July, the Winter light is soft but a chill wind blows.

We are all feeling blue.

Except for the Superb Fairy-Wrens.

Male Superb Fairy-Wrens are normally easily distinguishable by their iridescent blue plumage, but in mid Winter, all the Superb Fairy-Wrens have their brown PJs on.

Everyone is extra hungry.

Ama is the ice-queen.

Any rain is welcome as drought tightens its grip.

Every month Su from Zimmerbitch hosts a monthly photo challenge called The Changing Seasons.  Click on the link to find out how to participate.

As I am leaving on my road-trip tomorrow, I won’t be posting much over the next month (except for a book review that I’ve scheduled).  But I will be collecting some photos for next month’s The Changing Seasons.

Have a lovely August.

Take care.
Tracy

  1. I love the photo with the silver trunks, beautiful symmetry. I’m glad to hear you’re taking a road trip and look forward to some posts about it eventually. Safe travels!

    1. Thank you, Jane. We had to go Pacific Highway because the doctor thought it was not the best idea to go hiking in the cold inland. So we are having a sitting holiday instead, brunch, coffee, etc. Keep looking at all the national parks on the map though. 🙂

  2. Followed you on over from Margaret’s blog… I have never traveled to Australia, but would love too visit someday. But as I grow older I an becoming more and more aware of how little I know of my own place. I love the description of the wren…interesting how it adapts to the seasons. Something we can learn from it. Have a great trip.
