Project 365 Photo a day 365/16

What a Monday morning. Woke up with a nice cold and to top it off had to rush to school to take my son’s P.T clothes.  After dropping the clothes off at school I went to my printers armed with my camera. But nothing caught my eye that I would like to photograph. Table Mountain was hidden halfway behind a curtain of pollution and it’s not a pretty picture. So after I returned home I went outside into my garden and the following caught my eye…

I just love our Bottle Brush tree and just love how this photo came out. I took one without my flash and then one with my flash. I decided to use the one with the the flash.

The branch of our Bottle Brush Tree.

After taking several photo’s of our Bottle Brush I headed indoors then Tammy started barking and keep looking in the empty pond. The only water in it was from the rain. That remind’s me I need to spend some time in my garden the plants are getting out of hand looks like a jungle out there. I went to go and have a look what she was going on about and there the little Cape Wagtail is drinking water. Just as I stood closer to take a photo it flew up and walked up and down on the wall.  This little Cape Wagtail is part of my garden and so is the rest of  his family. Last year they build a nest in one of the Palm Trees in front of our house and I still took some shots of the feeding process. I hope this year they will do it again…
