From the flowers to the animals giving life to their next generation I love Spring. The photograph I chose for the front cover of this years calendar is from the Ballarat Botanical Gardens. Personally I prefer tulips before they open up, but these were so colourful I wanted to share them with you.
All photographs were shot during spring 2021.
January – A signet still in it’s fluffy newborn stage, at home in its nest in Gippsland.
February – A Ballarat bee pollinating a fragrant spring blossom tree.
March – An inquisitive Gippsland koala joey posing for the camera.
April – A peckish rainbow lorikeet enjoying a snack in Gippsland.
May – A Ballarat butterfly stretching it’s wings in the early morning light.
June – A single flower floating in the water at the Ballarat Botanical Gardens. See February in The Master Collection for another shot from the same day.
July – A Gippsland echidna foraging for sustenance among the bright pink daisy flowers of the Australian native pigface.
August – A Ballarat kookaburra pausing momentarily after chowing down a hearty breakfast.
September – A cockatoo stretched in full flight riding the air currents in Gippsland.
October – A Ballarat tulip and daffodil still wet from the overnight rain.
November – A Gippsland kangaroo joey at home in it’s mothers pouch.
December – Tranquil hues of orange and yellow made this Gippsland sunset over the still water my favourite for Spring.
