Compliments Of Mother Nature

If any of you follow Laurie Smith’s blog laurie27wsmith.wordpress.com, you have been treated to many original photos that he has taken depicting the flora, birds, and wildlife native to Australia.  It was with that in mind that I offer you this.  I did not take them.  They were sent to me.  But I thought they were so unique that you might enjoy them as I did.

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
