Emus are a common sight on the roads in western Queensland. Give them the right of way. You definitely don’t want to hit one.

Earlier this year we visited a local National Park that we’d never been to, despite having lived in the area for over 25 years.
We were rewarded with great views of the surrounding hills.

Nothing beats a good sunrise photo … except experiencing the sunrise yourself. This is one of my persona favourite sunrise pics. You might of have seen it before. And you might see it again. So I hope you like it.

This beautiful spot on the waterfront at Queensland’s Sunshine Coast was part of Mum’s favourite stretch of coastline, which is why we scattered her ashes there.
Thanks for this week’s challenge, Nancy.
I thought Nancy’s challenge – Out in the Country – would be easy for me. That’s where I live and I have lots of pictures. And that’s the problem … which one to choose?
I’ve selected this one taken on a Sunday drive earlier this year. There’s no chance of me taking anything today. The weather has turned miserable and cold. Much colder than we’re used to here in central Queensland. So everyone is staying rugged up inside if they can.
From inside the lava tube we could look out at the full moon and watch some of the 300,000 microbats head out for the night. And, if you look carefully, you can see some of the snakes in the trees outside. They’re waiting to catch a bat for dinner.

Every night this little spider builds its web between a verandah post and a wind chime.
Every day, the web is damaged. Sometimes the wind chime stretches it beyond its limits; sometimes a bird will fly through it.
We thought the spider would find a more stable place to live.
But the verandah light attracts plenty of insects. Some of them don’t make it to the light and the spider eats.
So, every night, it rebuilds.
Don’t you wish you could approach your daily grind with the endless optimism of this spider?
This jewel spider enjoyed its dinner.
