nature..........

there are a couple of cows on the dam bank here..........right at the sun........not sure if you can enlarge the pic and see them...........wished I had my zoom lens and good camera................
we have some gorgeous sunsets............best in the world I would say...............this one was pretty simple but still gorgeous...........same as above but framed with the branch........
Over the weekend we got inundated with grass hoppers...............if you can click on the pic all the glistening things are grass hoppers........there are thousands upon thousands in this pic...........
you can see some flying here but  all the marks on the dirt are grass hoppers............
Another pic from last weeks rain..........there was water running around everywhere..............OMG have not see that for such a long time............it was great to see............the creek even got about .6m 
Ants build the most amazing things.............this is about 4-5inchs high.............
Catch you later

  10. Gorgeous sunsets! Love seeing the rainy shot. Does that tall apartment block the ants have built mean a lot more rain or is that an old wives tale? Yes I hope the grasshoppers didn't do too much damage too!

  11. Gorgeous photos Chooky. Ants sure are very clever littler critters; I'm not too fond of grasshoppers though - don't know why they just don't appeal lol x

  12. Oh I forgot it is coming up to hopper season! There was one year where the front yard looked like gold grass (instead of dirt), cos it was just covered in them! Ants are mighty clever little critters :)
