You Capture – Our Choice

This weeks You Capture theme was ‘Photographers Choice.’ I didn’t end up going out to specifically take a photo for You Capture like I usually do, so this is just a random assortment of photos from the week.

This is a Cowslip Orchid, or Caladenia Flava. I took this, and the next photo, at my old place of work, Kings Park. Kings Park is totally awesome and is only a few kilometres from the Perth CBD. It’s home to the botanic gardens, but the best bit is that it has a good-sized area of natural bushland. I don’t know of anywhere else in Australia, or the world with that kind of natural resource so close to the city.

Anigozanthos manglesii. Or Kangaroo Paw, the floral emblem of Western Australia.

This flower isn’t from Kings Park. It’s from my humble vegie patch. I’m not sure if it’s a garlic or onion flower, my garden is what you might call ‘free form,’ so things grow where they feel like it.

Busy little bees making my beans grow.

I love little anthills. Ant are such industrious creatures, and so clever!

I love nougat so much. I really want to try making it at home, because it always seems to be so expensive!

This is probably my favourite photo for the week. I don’t know why, it’s nothing special, but I like the reflection of the bottle on the table, and it’s from a lovely breakfast with my boy, so that makes it even better.

‘Oink!’

    I love Kangaroo Paw, it’s one crazy flower, but really reminds me of the uniqueness of the Australian flora and fauna. Great shot.

    Beautiful flowers, but there is something about the picture of the glass sweating on the table with its reflection.

    That first flower is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve always wanted an orchid, but know I’d manage to kill it way too fast!

    Great shots, I like the little piggy at the end. Very cute!

    Oh my gosh! I can’t believe all your beautiful photos! I love the kangaroo paw. How could I ever have seen one without You Capture! And the bee photos are great but most of all I can’t believe the close-up you got of that ant hill. Awesome!
    And you’re right. The glass on the table is especially beautiful. Really nice job!
