Hello dear readers, I hope you are all of sound mind and body. If not, and even if you are, you will love Mark Berkery’s nature blog, Nature’s Place. Mark is a gifted photographer and exponent of macro photography. His photographic subjects are primarily insects, spiders and other small critters. His photos are exquisite. Mark is also a firm believer in nature’s healing power and combines this with meditation. If insects, macro photography and/or meditation interest you, go check out Mark’s blog. For those of you who live in Southeast Queensland (Australia), Mark is proposing some meet-ups in a public park. So if you are looking for a bit of quiet time (an hour or so) in the great outdoors and would like to go along, check out the details of the meet-up here. Fostering good mental health is a very important part of learning to live with Covid-19. Mark is doing his bit to help others who may be struggling.
I do not know Mark personally, and cannot vouch for the actual state of his mind, so readers must make their own judgement regarding the bona fides of the invitation. Whatever you decide, definitely check out his blog. It is fantastic.
For Sunshine’s Macro Monday #32
It was a public holiday in Canberra today to mark the anniversary of the official naming of Australia’s national capital in 1913. And a beautiful day it was. It is such a privilege to live in this gorgeous city. As well as being the seat of the Federal government, Canberra is the home to a number of research institutions and universities, so we have an abundance of very clever people living here. Some of those people have developed and maintain the Canberra Nature Map, an online map of Canberra’s diverse flora and fauna. It is a live map updated regularly by members. As a result of this wonderful resource, we now know the name of the funky fly I posted photos of recently (see original post). Read more
Sunshine’s Macro Monday.
Welcome to the photo blog of Tracy’s husband. Just kidding. I did have an anecdote to go with this announcement but I will save it until another day. My bed is calling. Today I’ve got a couple of photos just to prove that we are still alive. Take care, readers. Rest easy. Read more
It is Friday, so it is time for a song. But first, a couple of photos and a story about the one that got away. There are some photos, ladies and gentlemen, that should never be cropped and enlarged, so of course, I couldn’t resist.
