Cosmic Photo Challenge: Geometric Shapes

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Geometric Shapes.

I decided to do some table top photography on Sunday morning. In part because I had a couple of ideas for photos when I was modifying a couple of camera straps on Saturday.

O rings, but not the soft rubber type. These are hard plastic O rings that I used for my home made camera straps.

Weekend Challenge: What Is It?

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: What Is It?

I had a few ideas for the challenge and quickly settled on one although I can’t really explain why I picked an autumn subject in spring.

 

Weekend Challenge: What is it.

This one’s quite easy.

Weekly Prompts: What is it?

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: What is it?

Having been digitising my slide archives this winter I had a few photos suitable for the challenge.

In the 1980s BBC Wildlife magazine used to hold a monthly photo competition. Each month they would publish a photo of a mystery nature subject and the first person drawn from the entries to correctly identify the species would win a years subscription to the magazine.

 

Weekly Prompts: What is it?

What is it? No one correctly identified this photo so the magazine didn’t have to give away a subscription that month. The answer is below.

 

Weekly Prompts: What is it?

What is it? This is the inspiration for Velcro, or hook and loop fastener as it is more correctly known according to the company that makes Velcro. These are the burrs, or hooks, on a Lesser Burdock seed head. The burrs/hooks are what cause the seed heads to attach themselves to clothing and animal hair.

 

Weekly Prompts: What is it?

The first photo is a close-up of the clumps of hair on the body of a Ruby Tiger Moth caterpillar. Possibly the caterpillar in this photo although the captions on the slide mounts don’t include a date so I can’t be sure.

Friendly Friday: Art Unexpected

When I read the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Art Unexpected prompt I had several ideas for a post. On Friday evening I was selecting photos for the idea I was going with.

Luckily I hadn’t started editing those photos because on Saturday morning I changed my plans for this post. Then, when the first photo l picked for the new version was square I decided that all the photos should be square.

A selection of photos of unexpected art in nature.
