Life in Colour May: Purple
Jude has asked “What purples can you find in Nature?” I have a few native plants and flowers around my place that are purple. It is hard to capture the purple of the flowers in some of the flowers. Most of these flowers are between 10 and 18mm in diameter. Unfortunately I don’t know the names of some of these.
I am saving a lot of purples for later in the month so come back every now and then and see what else I can find.
Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Wind
The Dragon speeds along in the wind
The Tiger looks apprehensive as the wind seems to drop……
….and ends up in the tree
The happy little orange kits sails on regardless
The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #146 – Focusing on the Details
Like all photographers I like to find a subject and get set to take the photograph doing all the usual things which becomes innate after a while. Position of the subject, rule of thirds perhaps, lighting, background noise and all those things that make your photo the fabulous one you want.
One thing I like is after the photo has been taken and you plug the camera in to download and get a surprise to find something else in the image while you were busy focusing on the detail. Lets see what we can find among these photos.
Did you see the insect before or after seeing the Dandelion?
I wonder if you saw the flower buds or the spider or the insects who may not have known the spider was there too first
Was your focus drawn to the flowers detail, the Native Stingless Bees or the tiny jumping spider?
Getting in close to focus on the detail
The yellow Alamanda flower or the Ghost Crab Spider first?
In among the Torch Ginger flower lurks another tiny spider
I was after a photo of the small Billy Bonkers Grevillea flower as the light was so good, I didn’t see the ants
Another ant on a flower that was missed until down loading
Did you see the leaf, verandah boards, butterfly wing or the ant moving the wing?
An ants work is hard going
I didn’t see the Dwarf Eastern Tree Frog as the water lily flower looked so good in the late afternoon light
Who was inside the flower?
I hope you enjoyed trying to find what can be found while you focus on the detail.
The Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Ruby
The Ruby is my birthstone. I have been looking around for anything I may have that is Ruby red besides flowers but to no avail. The archive folders may reveal something so lets have a look and see what we can find. While we’re looking have a listen to one of my favourite Rolling Stones songs.
Kates Friday Fun: Harmony
Enjoy a bit of Harmony as you have a look at the selection of birds in the bird baths over the years. Click on any photo to enlarge if it takes your fantasy.
