365 Project - Monday 20/10

Caught Red Handed x 2
 I picked some Mulberries this morning & while cleaning & removing the stems before putting them in a pie, I found this tiny while spider in the bowl
 He's smaller than the fingernail on my pinkie finger & is stained pink from the Mulberries just like my hands are.
 He sure is a cute little guy, I left him on my maidenhair fern on the deck, hopefully he will be able to avoid the darn Indian Miner bird, that eat every spider & bug in the garden

365 Project - Sunday 19/10

A world without honey bees would not be a world at all
Our bees are dying at a rapid rate.

Charles Darwin once said that “The life of man would be made extremely difficult if the bee disappeared.”

So it’s safe to say that Darwin, if he was still alive, would be more than a little concerned to know that over fifty per cent of the world’s honey bee population have died.

Why should you care? Because bees are responsible for pollinating 70 per cent of the world’s horticulture and agricultural crops, so without them we simply would not have fresh fruit and vegetables - in fact, we would all starve within five years, because nothing could be pollinated.

365 Project - Friday 17/10

Rainbow web 
 Please click on the picture to see the detail
This is quite a small spider maybe about 2 cm long - 1 inch for you in the USA ;)
She is tucked away between a tree & the fence, but was in the sun this morning when I found her. I love that the web has become a 'rainbow' in several places

365 Project - Thursday 16/10

I found these feathers while on my morning walk, I love the 'oil slick' colours on the side, they only show when you hold the feather a certain way. I think they come from the Crested Pigeon, which is pretty common in suburbia here in Australia. http://birdlife.org.au/bird-profile/crested-pigeon

365 Project - Wendesday 15/10

My little succulent is about to flower, it's so dainty. It looks like it is floating in space..

365 Project - Tuesday 14/10

One bottle on the wall
I found this beautiful bottle hidden away behind some other stuff in the basement, it deserved to have it's day in the sun.
