Aimless stroll

Some photographs from an aimless wander around outside my office at lunchtime today.

An audioBlog accompanies these photographs [3 Mbytes, 5 min 35 sec duration]. The audio commentary is also distributed as a podcast. You need to subscribe to my RSS2 feed towards the bottom of the right hand column on this page and you need to use aggregator software capable of utilising this. The photographs are also included within the .mp3 file. View them via iTunes artwork, for example.

Galls on gum leaves
An insect, probably a wasp, has caused the gum leaves to respond to this perceived attack by thickening up their skin to form galls.

Looking over the top of iron roofs
I really enjoy the shape and lines of this style of roof. In this case the scene is further enhanced by the vista behind it.

Young magpie seems fearless
This young magpie seemed quite happy to watch me as I walked around it.

Callistemon
Callistemon in flower.

Unknown purple flower
An unknown plant. I don’t recall ever seeing a flower such as this before.

Flower loooking like antlers in velvet
The plant is probably an Anigozanthos (Kangaroo paw).
