This Tuesday I have two Townsville photographs to share. They are not cafe reviews, or Things to Do in Townsville, but just moments from my day. I took this first shot through the windscreen on the way home from our daily walk along The Strand. The next one came about as I was sitting at my computer one morning. I heard sweet bird twitters through the verandah doorway prompting an investigation. Two parrots were crawling on the Bottlebrush flowers within easy arms reach, but I have quite a few photographs of parrots, so instead my eye was drawn to a butterfly sitting on one of the flowers. I had tried to photograph this particular butterfly before but frustratingly it wouldn’t stay long enough for me to capture it. Here was my chance. I shifted position to take the shot, setting off a chain reaction. The parrots got spooked and screeched off, the butterfly fluttered away in fright and a Honeyeater took advantage of the situation in an instant – landing neatly onto the flower recently vacated by the Butterfly. Wala – I snapped the honeyeater. I think he has a leaf in his mouth. What do you think? Have you captured any nature photographs recently?
