Finally winter – cold nights

I love the seasons and their distinctive differences. Autumn with its colours and now winter with their crisp, cold and blue mornings. I went down the valley this morning to feed the cows and alpacas. We feed they hay to warm them up and they love it. Took some pictures on they way. The alpacas greeted me with frost on their backs. What a lovely cold morning.

According to the media, yesterday was the coldest night in Auckland this year. Well, if so, then last night was colder.

I love details, hence macro photography is always a cool thing for me.
Here’s a picture of one of our common visitors, a praying mantis. While common, I still find them fascinating little critters.

Funny to see the cat getting quite intimidated by the arrival of the ducks behind her and starting to freak and run away when one of the ducks started picking the cat’s tail.
