Photo Challenges

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.

Weekly Prompts

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Yellow

The new Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge is Yellow.

My first thought was the various species of flora and fauna subjects with yellow in their common English names. I then decided that idea was to obvious before remembering the giant yellow butterfly garden ornament I had photographed on a walk last winter.

Spotted, Giant Red Butterfly

A giant Red Butterfly garden ornament over wintering on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. Taken on a walk earlier in the week when we saw some blue skies and sun between the snow squalls.

Continuing a bit of a theme from this winter as I have photographed some of the relatives of this butterfly previously and also because I gave it a film type border.
