A Fly Past

A Fly Past, originally uploaded by cnlizziebns.

Sitting on the mountain tonight shaking off the dog, heard the dingoes howling, the red stag roaring, the night birds calling and the thump and thud of the marcupials as I crashed about, forget to put new batteries in my torch didn't I?? The moon came out of the clouds briefly and took a big shot of it and put it in this photograph when it was behind the clouds...got out my broomstick and went for a fly.

The deer roar happens at the full moon every year around Easter and we get the city boys dressed in their camouflage stalking about being poachers, half the adventure for them I am sure.....I am thinking thinking as every now and then I spoil their fun and go riding in the mountains all night singing a reciting poems after all I did not call this Lissies Insomnia for nothing (oh yes I can spell my name but the keyboard has given up on the last letter of the alphabet)...

Sometimes I see in the distance a campfire and then when ride in closer can not see the darn thing...quickly doused and them hiding in the bush...Why they hide is beyond me....they are armed to the teeth with guns/bows and arrows...Can you imagine...now boys give me the guns and you can go home...yeah right....BUT when and if I find their vehicle they are in trouble he he.....although a lot of the Rambos now get dropped off and picked up at a agreed spot and time.

I am sure one of these days a stray bullet may find someone....the funniest thing I have witnessed is when one or two get lost and give up with their hands up I am exaggerating a little here...they are so embarrassed and I am stifling giggles but looking appropriately stern mounted on my horse with the stockwhip over my shoulder looking menacing but they do have the advantage with the huge guns they tote....such is life with a property not two hours from a major city....

uuuuummmm should I or should I not go and be a fly in the ointment!! decisions decisions

Have a safe Easter

I had no idea - I just randomly checked your blog and YAY!! LIZZIE IS BACK!!!

I've commented on posts way below, but thought you may never find them, so to summize:

1/ Did you keep wee doggie?
2/ Are those shots your postcards and are they for sale?
3/ Good on you for keeping a cool head with the injured fellow
4/ You are made of sterner stuff than I wish guns about at night in the bush!

Looks like you have well and truly mastered Photoshop - it just takes time and unlimited patience!(which I do not possess in any great quantity)

We should compare full moon shots - I'd like to see what difference lat. & long. make on any given full moon night.

So gald that you're back,

Gawd, shocking spelling mistakes again.

That should be WITH guns ( although wish guns sounds a lot more friendly) and GLAD
