All these photos were taken with my 100mm macro lens. I achieved this look below by moving the camera quickly upwards as I took the photo. Do you like it? You can see before and after here.
And slightly sideways with the shape of the grass tree.
There were no wildflowers flowering yet, as it is mid winter here, but there were opportunities for closeups everywhere, which is the reason why I was using my macro lens.
This plant is known as Water Bush (bossiaea aquifolium). It collects rainwater on its leaves and gives you a shower if you brush by. They are covered in yellow pea flowers in spring. As you can see the leaves have sharp points.
Below you can see the Water Bush in flower in images I took last September. The branches are weighed down by the weight of the rainwater and flowers.
Do you remember I told you about the Snotty Gobble - Persoonia - tree last week? Well here it is again. I found one with green fruit on it. The fruit are edible and were bush-tucker for the indigenous people of the area. But trust me, don't try them in this green state!
Underneath the outer bark is a gorgeous deep red.

Camera or no, don't you think there is something invigorating about walking in the bush or forest?
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed this walk through the Australian bush with me. Do you have a favourite bush walking place? It is sometimes amazing what you might see down in the woods......like this chair. It's been sitting here for a few years now. Obviously left by someone.
