Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

Insects in Flower

This photo is wrong, the exposure is set for the sunny background, not the flower which is in shade. However it is almost pleasing to see the soft white flower parts against the bright blue background. You can see other takes on Wrong here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

Every year we are amazed by the growth of the lotus. The water in the dam is smooth in spring, then leaves begin to appear, unfurling on the surface as the red lotus plant begins to shoot. Soon there are buds, then as they open into blooms more buds push up towards the light, the older flowers start to lose their petals, their inner seedpod swelling, so the waterscape changes constantly. In this photo you can see the lotus in each of its summer growth stages; leaf, bud, flower, pod and seed.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

lives in their hands

When our children were growing up we had geese in our menagerie … here two of the boys who are shivering from swimming too long are cuddling baby goslings …. the thrill of lives in their hands. This photo is a scan of an old print …. not as clear as usual sorry!
