AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Out of nowhere when we wandered the lovely property of Coolart, a rabbit suddenly appeared and just as suddenly disappeared!

Great pictures (rabbits are my totem). Your haikus are just wonderful -- this is a difficult challente.

Paradoxical, yes!

Amity said...

Because I don't have much patience, my shots come out blurred and a failure oftentimes!

Your haiku taught me a lesson to become a better photographer...:)

This is true. Patience is required in most actions of live. Wonderful picture and Haiku.


Leo said...

Patience is vital for a wildlife photographer I think :)

And what would life be without a little paradox? Boring, methinks!

Blossom Vydrina said...

paradoxical but so true

Traci B said...

Such truth in this one; I find it especially applicable to photographing butterflies. :)
