This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: 5+ Items.
As the challenge is 5+ I decided to go with a selection of six photos.
5+ young Eurasian Blue Tits.
5+ tree trunks.
5+ Common Merganser ducklings.
5+ Borage seeds.
5+ red berries.
5+ American White Pelicans.
This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Trail.
As my walks around the neighborhood involve a selection of trails I thought I would go with a selection of photos taken when walking them rather than photos of the actual trails.
Some Dandelion clocks taken on a walk after the challenge was posted.
A hodgepodge of tree trunks in the autumn.

The new Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Less is More.
As I had been in a minimalist mood for a while before my accident I thought it was a good excuse to review some of the photos.
First, a group of berries. I’m surprised nothing had eaten them.
A Maple leaf on the snow.
A seed head in winter.
Some old wood piles sticking out of Colpoy’s Bay.
Seed pods in winter.
Finally, snow on a twig.
The new Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge is Sphere.
It got me thinking about spheres in nature, subjects such as flowers, fruit and berries.
These are Firethorn berries also known as Pyracantha. These were photographed in Nantwich, Cheshire, England. It’s a popular plant with some gardeners grown for their decorative flowers and fruit. The fruit (berries) are also popular with some bird species in the winter.
This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is Natural Patterns.
First, some Cotoneaster berries. They sort of remind me of a fish skeleton.
Next, some Bracken fronds. Another reminder of a fish skeleton maybe.
And finally, hoarfrost rimmed Privet leaves.
