Sharing some shots from the weekend from the backyard

A robber fly that was perched quietly on the clothesline ...

thanks Brian

I like the colours in the first Butterfly pict. The angles were more necessity as he was a little camera shy.

Thanks Guys - your comments are much appreciated.

One thing we don't have to deal with Brisbane is snow ;)

Good series of shots there - good to see another Aussie :)

I've also noticed that Robberflies tend to like perching on washing line lines...
