The silver Wattle or Acacia dealbata is a tree of many uses its seeds are eaten by parrots wood grubs love its timber the black cockatoos love the grubs and possums love the sap that forms on the trees trunk and I love this one for its beautiful shape and photographic appeal .By the way humans can also eat the sap I have tried it a number of times but-for taste it can hardly be recommended. Victoria .Australia.

    As I said last night I reckon this one is truly superb. Very artistic, the perfect irregularity of nature. It’s not a classic bub shot though so will be interested in the reponse you get for it here (the ol’ does it say look at me as a thumbnail bub issue). A good shot is a good shot though. Thanks for letting me enjoy it again and a great trip to a truly obscure drop yesterday, found the road we drove in on, on the rooftop map and added it to the vicmap.

  • Thanks for coming up Trav and I hope your tire got you home without a hassle and yes will this photo stand up in an oversaturated world.

    This is an amazing shot Don, I love the mist behind, it really gives a distorted view of depth, like it could be a tree low in a valley or it could be on a cliff somewhere.. awesome atmosphere!

  • Thanks Simone its a bit fine artish maybe?

    A bit of both I think Don… I could easily see this in a nature book or hanging on a wall as a canvas!

    Hauntingly powerful image and informative writeup, Donovan. Keep doing what you’re doing (aside from sap-eating)!
