As you can guess from the post’s title, this week’s challenge is
the color yellow yellow flowers – I forgot and was thinking the challenge was the color yellow, good thing I checked the post!
Chestnut blooms in the barnyard – they’re at least two weeks early this year!
Birdsfoot Trefoil growing in one of the fence braces.
Okay, this one’s not a flower – the tansy isn’t blooming yet but the Cinnabar Moth caterpillars are yellow…
This week’s challenge is the color pink. It just so happens that one of our pink rhodies, Mary Belle, is blooming…
Mel’s nose is mostly black but he does have a small patch of pink inside his left right nostril. He wasn’t too happy about the camera being stuck in his face….
Got so busy last week that I missed Sunday Stills! At least there’s always next week. 😉
When I first saw the bee, I thought it had gotten too cold to fly, since it was pretty overcast. But then I noticed the white spider – practically the same color as the rose – with a death grip on bee’s neck. Without the two red stripes on its back, it blends in incredibly well. Did a quick Internet search and found out that the spider is a Goldenrod Crab Spider, which is either white or yellow, depending on what color flower they are hunting on, and they can change between the two colors.
It’s a toss up between the super macro mode and zoom – both are equally awesome!
Macro Monday, fall edition! You know that fall is here and winter’s just around the corner when everything is covered in little ice crystals…
Our second frost of the year, hardly a killing frost, but cold enough to make you reach for a scarf and clean off the wood stove that sits all summer for a nice little fire.
Note: To everyone who wanted to know about the virus – it’s gone, thank god. I had the computer up and back to normal in about six hours.
Flowers/Wildflowers – a perfect spring-time challenge! One of the many rhododendrons in our yard… I can’t remember the names of all of them, but Mom knows most the them.
Okay, so not the best shot, but I wanted to combine all the color of the lilac tree, the sky and the leafing out chestnut trees in the background.
In dappled sunlight by the house…
