Overlook and Overlooked: admiring an abandoned homestead 

Several times I have driven past this lovely, lonesome homestead, with its enviable pastoral views, promising to one day stop. When I finally did stop, it was only to gaze longingly up at it from the padlocked gate, wishing I could get permission for a closer look.

Narrapumelap Homestead, Wickliffe: surprise subject

I took this photo of the flowers, enjoying their glowing contrast against the dense, dark background of greenery; it was only later, when zooming in 100 percent (as I tediously always do, checking for abhorrences), that I noticed a large insect was nestled amongst the blossom.
