I visited a local reserve (area of natural bushland) today. It was so much better than I anticipated. My aim was to take close-up photos of flowers. I still have lots to learn about using my DSLR camera but about 50% of the photos came out okay. Better luck next time!
Here are some images of the native vegetation. Much of it is quite unique to South Western Australia.
