Fencing...........

DH dragged me out fencing this morning........I had planned bookwork but he had other ideas..........so to keep him motivated I went along to help..........it is a beautiful sunny day here just a little cool.........here are some supplies/tools........my gloves are essential.......

a couple of hours later we had some more flood destroyed fence replaced..........dh's punishment for taking me out with him is me taking the camera and he is getting better at "amusing himself" while I flip off and take pics.........

we were fencing down at the creek and there are some "AMAZING" big old gums down there...........I layed on the ground for this one..........things look so different..........try it........

there was this big hole in this broken limb..........I wanted to know what was in there so though I would take some pics and finally got brave enought to hold my arm in quite far and get these pics.........thank goodness nothing flew out.........or crawled out..........lol.......

There are lots of birds down the creek and I caught this Cookatoo and a pair of Gulars...........so many different bird sounds while there.......

the bark..........

more playing...........

Hope you like these pics...........it has been awhile since I have had a post like this............I missed it..........

Take care til next time..............Chookyblue.........

  7. Amazing photos! I wish I was as talented with a camera. You really captured the feel of the lanscape and it was like i was there.
    How great is it when you just stop and listen sometimes? I was on yard duty today and stopped and listened for awhile with the kids and we heard lots of birds and admired the gums and the way the trees looked against the sky.
    Thanks for remining me to be still sometimes....

  9. If you have to go fencing.....you may as well go off and take photos! Good on ya!
    great photos though - as usual. You are much braver than me - I could not stick my arm up that hollow log! Could have yukky spiders or crawlies ooohhh! I don't know how you dream these things up! You are still a little kid at heart!
    Love the new header. Wouldn't mind knowing how to do that in one of your tutorials???
    Love you...bye

  12. Love the bush pictures.
    Also the one lying down.
    Do enjoy being on the ground and kneeling while you can.
    I have decided I miss kneeling more than anything else.
    And if you cannot kneel, you cannot get up when you get down.
    Such a darn simple logic about these things.
