Polygonised Animal Statue Canopy Thingamajigs
Well this Polygon Challenge was doing my head in, I was getting desperate and just taking a photo of a stop sign was becoming a distinct possibility. Then as I passed these new statues at South Perth I did a closer inspection and discovered that they were an amalgam of steel polygons…Eureka. Out the front of the Frilled Neck Lizard statue was an old American guy trying to thaw out in the sun. I wondered how he managed to get past our border controls and Quarantine as they are known high risk Covid carriers, no offense intended. Hopefully with the vaccines things will improve soon. The other statue is our state animal, the Numbat. The ferry from the city, drops off visitors to the Perth Zoo which is a short walk down the road so I suppose these canopies were put they for shelter and to promote the Zoo.
Can’t find any more interesting polygons so I’ll put up a few photos of trees I’ve seen from my bike in the last few months.
It’s ‘Australia Day’ so there’s a flag and a frangipani tree on the left.
Golden Shower tree.
Illawarra Flame tree
The rarer white flowering Jacaranda.

So glad you persisted. That frilled neck lizard is a terrific find. And if I’m not mistaken there are some polygonnish patterns in those mittens.
No more polygon challenges…..Please. Enjoying Tucson.
When I looked at your pictures, it was as if you live someplace on the other side of the world. But then I saw Bernie. And the Green Bay Packers are not SuperBowl bound. All is right and just in the world.
Still, great pictures. I’ve never seen anything like that West Australian Christmas Tree picture.
I’m crying into my Millars Lite, third time lucky they say. Most of the plants and animals are unique here.
To heck with finding or not finding polygons. Your post stands alone on the gorgeous blooming trees. Sitting here with snow and not a leaf on a tree, so it was delightful to see trees with color.
Glad to add some colour to your life. Being summer and closer to the equator helps. You guys really know how to do a proper winter.
A wonderful collection of blossoming trees! Good one of Bernie, too. Gee, I haven’t done a Bernie pic yet! Better start looking.
Bernie pics are all the rage at the moment, I think he enjoyed his little spell in the warm
Love all the pictures of flowering trees! I can’t wait to go back and do some touring in Australia!
When you go riding around the suburbs there always seems to be something flowering, so many plants from other countries with similar weather.
Well done with the polygons! I do like that frill-necked lizard. Tough week over there – lockdown, masks and fire. Ugh. Stay safe.
I suppose our time would eventually come for a lockdown…, and now throw in a potential cyclone with strong winds and bushfires, hopefully all hell won’t brake loose.
