An experimental audioBlog accompanies these photographs, 1.5 Mbytes, 4 min 9 sec duration. The audio file is also distributed as an RSS enclosure if you subscribe to my RSS2 feed towards the bottom of the right hand column on this page and you use aggregator software capable of utilising this.
The audio was recorded outdoors using a Griffin Italk microphone and an Apple iPod. The occasional rumble was the wind on the microphone; there are also some birds in the background; oh, and the flies.
I culled the dozen images I had selected for today down to 6. Apologies if you feel there are still too many :-)
This lizard gave one of the dogs a surprise this morning. She almost stepped on it before realising it was there.
Many wattles are in flower. There are about 750 species of wattle (Acacia) in Australia. The books I have don’t help in identifying those on today’s photoblog.
This wattle has especially sharp, spikey spines, and white, rather than yellow, flowers.
A member of the pea (Fabaceae) family. I think this one is “Rusty Pods” (Hovea longifolia). I have a modicum of doubt about this because the book I used to identify it suggest that it’s mainly coastal (and we’re a long way from the coast).
A member of the heath family (Epacridaceae) about to flower. Exact identification is beyond the books I have.
It was under this tree that I recorded the audioBlog that accompanies this photoBlog entry. In the audioBlog I chat about the day’s photographic activities.
