Captured at 1/80th f8.0 and ISO-200.

I forgot to say the flower growing alongside the mailbox is a native River Lily, they seem to enjoy living in that part of Australia!

All rightee then - I've been waiting for another one! Terrific capture of it, but I've got to admit it's almost "normal!"

John, I always like your mail boxes, but as Monnie said, this one does almost have a normal look to it! If it has been crafted by the owner, they have done an excellent job on it!

Very cute, John :)
I love the way you framed it with the tree and that fantastic plant. Is it a cactus?

Another beauty, John! I rather like the simple yet unique design. Is that an agapanthus helping the box watch for new mail? The flowers look similar but the leaves are pointier than our varieties.
