It looks surprisingly healthy considering it was buried under snow until recently.

This is my contribution to Six Word Saturday.

Red Daylily

Macro Monday this week is more of a close-up Monday.

I spotted this red Daylily on a walk yesterday morning. A neighbour has lots of Orange Daylilies growing along the road. This year there are also variegated yellow one’s and this small red one.

CFFC: Hats

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

Except my contribution is the same “hat” photographed weeks apart with two different cameras and lenses. Also it’s more like a cap than a hat although it’s not really either.

Is it just me or does the plywood figure remind anyone else of Alfred Hitchcock?

July Squares: Holly Blue Butterfly

A contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Blue photo challenge, day 30 of the 31 days of July.

With only two days left I decided to ignore the various blue birds, flowers and landscapes to go with another blue insect.

This is a Holly Blue Butterfly photographed on Holly in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

July Squares: Silver-studded Blue Butterflies

A contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Blue photo challenge.

Having only just realised how many birds there are with blue in their common English name it then occurred to me that there’s also a family of butterflies known as the Blues.

So here’s a pair of Silver-studded Blue Butterflies mating on a grass seed head. Photographed on Prees Heath, Shropshire, England.
