Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Spring

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Spring.

For the month of July the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge has the theme of seasons. I decided to go with a theme for each season, one bird photo, one scenic photo and one flora and fauna photo.

Throwback Thursday

Male Orange Tip Butterfly

Throwback Thursday travels back Cheshire, England in the early 1990s. With my slide archives 80% digitised I suspect that there will be quite a few insects and flowers in future Throwback Thursday posts.

This is a male Orange Tip Butterfly feeding on Bluebells in a cottage garden in Faddiley, Cheshire.

Friendly Friday: Re-imagine Orange

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Re-imagine Orange.

I thought about some of the various species of flora and fauna with Orange in their common English names. That’s when I discovered that orange wasn’t very common in species English names and that one of the photos in my archives with orange in the name was incorrect. What I had captioned Orange Marigold is more correctly known as Pot Marigold.

Friendly Friday: Re-imagine Orange

Orange Daylilies photographed on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. I wouldn’t be surprised if these aren’t classified as an invasive species in the future. Originally an Asian species I have seen them growing in various wild locations in Ontario.
