In October,
we revisited the Boranup forest,
this time with my Mum.

Everything was so much greener,
always so much love for Boranup.


The beast with hair of green.




More forest, this time in October )
moonvoice: (calm - fairy wren love)
I always feel a bit empty
if I don't get to visit the Boranup forest at least once a year.

Comprising mostly young karri leaves,
with a distinctive karri biome,
made up of metres of layers of karri bark that drops from the silvery branches every year.


Grey days, silvery trees.

This is the section of mostly miscellany lol.
We went on an adventure through Blackwood River National Park
never actually seeing the river.
Stopped by the farm properly we always admire on Caves Rd,
because it's just somehow very beautiful to us.
There was a tiny welcome swallow
about the size of my little finger,
where we were staying.
So there's photos of him too.


Prevelly - we went here between storms, and ate sushi, while watching the very choppy surf. We watched two women with their two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels go to take the spaniels for a walk on the green, and the spaniels quickly looked very unimpressed to be in such a windy, salty, spray-filled place.

Look I'm very enamoured by Grey (White) Goshawks
and White-Bellied Sea Eagles.
Pretty sure the White-Bellied Sea Eagle is a juvenile,
that's nearly got all it's adult feathers.
The White Goshawk is the white morph of the Grey Goshawk.
It is not an albino.
It is the only regularly naturally occurring entirely white bird of prey in the world.

Despite it being windy and rainy,
it was a good day for seeing the raptors.
I think the wind stirred their spirits a bit.
This batch of photos includes:
the Boobook owl, the Powerful Owl, the Tawny Frogmouth, the Brahminy Kite and the Wedge-Tailed Eagle (which it's still legal to hunt in most states, making it the most persecuted / killed eagle in the world)

Eagle's Heritage is Australia's largest raptor rehabilitation centre.
About an eighth of it is accessible to the public.
The rest is private.
Where possible birds are rehabilitated into the wild.
This section focuses on Ivy the Barn Owl
and the Black Kite (which is not black, but brown).

Due to fairly dismal weather
(yay dismal weather!)
we saw no fairy wrens on this holiday.
But we still got to see some very pretty birds
and one very bond New Holland Honeyeater,
while at The Berry Farm.


Friend!

We watched the sunset at Prevelly,
on the first night.
We worried the sunset would be pretty boring actually,
but high haze due to smoke burn-off gave it all
a kind of post-apocalyptic feel.
Which was awesome.

Maybe is sitting right next to the keyboard as though I'm going to bed soon.
(I am not.)
Moet is lying down on the chair next to me and he doesn't really give a shit when I go to bed.
Unless it passes 1.00am.
And then he'll get annoyed that I'm not in bed yet, to keep him warm, lol.

Ahhhh, cats.


A nonchalant Moet appears!



These nerds. )
moonvoice: (t - i'm already disturbed enter)
Inquiring minds need to know.

Currently Maybe's nickname is 'Gremlin.'

Moet's current nickname is 'It's Not Your Dinner Time.'





And many mooooore )
moonvoice: (t - quit stealing our letters)
Prepare for an epic photodump! :D

Our cats aren't allowed free access to the outside world,
so they basically get supervised access, like prison inmates.

And I usually go out with my camera and annoy them.

A lot.


My beautiful girl, Maybe. She's 7 now!




Hey look there's a fuckton more. )

We were there at feeding time,
which was why we caught a lot of active animals,
that are often sleeping or not visible.
I usually go to the Zoo really early in the morning,
but since taking Endep and Valdoxan I can't do that anymore.
Unexpected benefits - arriving at a Zoo at feeding time. :)

Tiger

I took a few of that tiger. And giraffes, because giraffes! )

Perfume Genius has a new album out.
I want to like it more than I do.
Spent some time with the Gorillas.
We don't have them at Perth Zoo.
Of all the primates,
I think they're my favourite.

Of course there's more under the cut )
moonvoice: (calm - cephalopod come to me)
I was pretty stressed over in Melbourne,
mostly because of tumours.
I'm sure I'll be far happier to go back once they're out via surgery.
And in the meantime,
Melbourne Zoo is a captivating place.
I always leave any zoo or wildlife centre
wanting to draw.

So we've had fairly miserable weather here lately. And by miserable I mean hot and muggy. (I know it's cold in most other places in the world, but here you could - literally - cook eggs on the road if the air wasn't so wet).

But wet hot air makes for wonderful cloudscapes, and a lot of the time, very beautiful sunsets.

And so here we are. :)

And so clouds. )

So while the Eastern States has been sweltering,
Perth has been having its coldest and wettest February day/s on record.
We've been having an extremely aberrant summer.

Which is lovely, except for my chronic illnesses, which don't find it so lovely.

But today was a rarity. Going to Hillarys on a Saturday afternoon to watch the sunset and grab some gelato, and it wasn't absolutely packed to the gills. What a lovely day though:

A fair few more under the cut lol )

At a time when things are more chaotic and awful than ever,
when there is so much to be mad at, outraged at, horrified at, grief-struck at,
I need these things more than ever.

I need to look at the sky for 20 minutes and marvel at the clouds.
I need to touch the leaves of the Corymbia ficifolia in my garden and whisper soothing words to its tired branches.
I need the hardiness of my Acacias and Grevilleas, and the song of the winds around me.

The sky sings, and it says... )

So we've just come to the end of a fairly intense heatwave.
In Ellenbrook, because we don't get the seabreeze, and heat swelters against the Darling Scarp, it's always about 2-4C more than it is in the Perth metro area.
So we've mostly been dealing with average temps of 41C for four days in a row. (A range of about 105-110F for USians).
Complete with high humidity.
Last night, the weather broke down as a degrading tropical cyclone system approached.
And now today, we have rain.

But here were the clouds from last night's sunset, which was glorious.

Glen's currently on a 4 hour flight home. (No wait, he's been delayed more).

I've been playing Dragon Age (...I'm going to be playing it forever, you can't stop me).

Also it took me like 50 hours to finally find Rifts less scary. *sighs at self*
