The new Weekly Prompt 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.

So this is Six Word Saturday.
Saturday morning of week 38 saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. There was thick cloud over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment.
When the rising sun started illuminating the clouds I noticed a small group of Yellow flowers on the shoreline so framed a shot to include them. I used a graduated neutral density filter to balance the exposure for the sky and foreground.
Some Yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchids on the South Bruce Peninsula. A variable plant around here, some years we have a good display of them, other years we don’t seem to see many. This year seems fairly typical, no spectacular shows but plenty about if you look for them.
These are growing on the edge of a side road where the power company cleared the brush from underneath the power lines last autumn.
