Hands up who likes Halloween (JNW’s Halloween Challenge – Spooky)

Last year I came across these “bloody hand prints” purely by chance. I had them decorating both our front door and our front windows for that little something spooky for our visitors!

Jennifer Nichole Wells is once again hosting her fun Halloween Challenge. Today’s challenge word is… Spooky.

Kangaroo feet – they’re bigger then you think! (OWPC – Kangaroo)

Maybe it’s because I’ve had friends who’ve repeatedly had fences kicked down by kangaroos, or maybe it’s simply the size of their top paws but I confess, I have very few warm and fuzzy feelings towards the kangaroo.

Then again, there’s no denying when a joey pops its head out of the pouch it is super cute! Kangaroo is the One Word Photo Challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells this week.

 

 

 

 

 

Each person’s Journey is different! (OWPC – Journey)

Looking out the window the other night, I had to look twice to check what I was actually seeing. Obviously it was time for this summer’s journey to be packed away!

Journey is this week’s One Word Photo Challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells.

Evening Jewel (OWPC – Jewelry)

Watching the sun set some nights it’s as if Mother Nature has donned her finest jewelry in celebration of yet another wonderful day and the prospect of an even better one tomorrow.

Jewelry is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Well.

An island here, an island there! (OWPC – Island)

Until this challenge I hadn’t appreciated not only does our home in Canada has views of water out the back complete with islands but so does our place in Australia. Albeit one tiny island on the left of the horizon but hey, it’s an island!

Island is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.

 

 

 

 

Pretty Little Insect (OWPC – Insect)

When it comes to attractive insects the one that comes immediately to mind for most of us is the butterfly. If you can believe Wiki there are some 18,500 species. Who knew!

Hummingbird Favourite (OWPC – Hummingbird)

One of the most exciting things to discover on moving to Canada was the tiny, wee Hummingbird. The first time I saw one I thought it was an over-sized moth hyped up on sugar-filled sports drink!

Hummingbird is the One Word Photo Challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells this week.

 

 

 

 

Summer Stunner! (OWPC – Hippo)

How gorgeous is this beauty, sunny themself near the water’s edge. Having only ever seen hippopotamuses standing in the waters of Africa, this was the first time I’d ever seen a hippopotamus out of water. It was incredible!

The turkey vultures standing nearby a little off-putting however. Are they standing guard or waiting for the meat to bake in the midday sun I wonder?

Hippo is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.

 

 

 

Careful, I’m always watching… (OWPC – Hideout)

One should  be careful of what’s lurking in the shadows. You never know who or what could be watching, waiting for their moment to pounce. Crocodiles are perfect examples of being able to find just the right hideout in murky waters.

It was more than a tad disconcerting to hear our white-water rafting guide in Costa Rica advise us that in the shallow depths beside us there was a crocodile. Fortunately this one was in an enclosure on another continent nowhere near our raft!

Hideout is the One Week Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.

 

 

 

 

And away she goes! (OWPC – Heron)

There are two beautiful herons that come visiting of an evening when the tides go out. On the odd occasion there is even sometimes a third heron.

There are moments I wish I could get so much closer to these birds but then I remind myself how lucky these herons are to have this time to themselves without any pesky people about!

Heron is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.
