#5 On the Lookout

I’m joining Becky in her February Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word Odd, referencing one of these definitions: different to what is usual or expected, or strange; a number of items, with one left over as a remainder when divided by two; happening or occurring infrequently and irregularly, or occasionally; separated from a usual pair or set and therefore out of place or mismatched. Look for #OddSquare.

While we didn’t travel as much as usual in 2021, we were fortunate to enjoy several holidays in our home state of Queensland and one short trip over the border in New South Wales. Join me this month in a retrospective look at the very odd year of 2021. 

Goomburra Valley, February 2021

One cheeky kookaburra decided his new favourite spot was the end of our caravan awning. He came every morning, perhaps in search of a tasty morsel or two at the camp breakfast table. If that’s what he was thinking, he would have been disappointed!

Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #18

It’s not an Australian bush camping trip unless you’re woken at sunrise by the raucous “laughter” of the kookaburra. The largest of the kingfishers, kookaburras call out every morning to re-establish their territory. Usually one bird starts before the rest of the family group joins in, reminding nearby groups of their presence.

While our travels are on hold, I’m joining in every day with Becky’s April Square Tops Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme word “top”.
