2019: Leftovers

A small selection of photos from 2019 that I edited for a post but never got used.

In no particular order.

Cee's Black and White Photo Challenge

Common Frogs in Monochrome

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Items with two M’s.

I was considering two photos for the challenge and rather than pick one decided to go with both. So I suppose that’s 4 M’s, or 6 if you count the two M’s in monochrome.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Not the Norm!

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Not the Norm!

I spotted this One-eyed Tree Creature on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada at the weekend. After researching the species online I didn’t come up with much information other than that the scientific name for the species is Unumoculus arborcreutair.

CFFC: Fashion.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fashion.

It hadn’t really registered with me until last weekend but there seems to be a new fashion in this part of Ontario, decorating the sides of sheds.

I spotted this shed when out for a walk with the camera on Saturday morning and went back yesterday morning when the light was better. The sun seems to be wondering why it’s sitting in a flotation ring.

A Photo a Week Challenge

A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow.

Having photographed some Black-eyed Susan’s a short time before the challenge was posted I decided that yellow flowers would be to obvious.

As yellow is associated with warmth I thought a winter photo would be interesting. I briefly considered a winter sunrise or sunset before deciding that was also to obvious.

Then I remembered the giant butterfly garden ornaments I photographed on some of my walks last winter. I was surprised that this giant Yellow Butterfly sitting in a patch of sunlight hadn’t headed south for the winter.
