A Word A Week Challenge: Pose

Here’s a little chap I met this summer who was certainly up for a pose!

It didn't take much encouragement to get Gordon Grey Dagger to get on the table once he realised there was a camera and possible fame on a blog!!

With a little encouragement……

"Hold it a bit lower!" ordered Gordon Grey Dagger in a slightly irritated way!

“Hold it a bit lower!” ordered Gordon Grey Dagger in a slightly irritated way!

So I held the leaf a bit lower!

Ah Gordon, the perfect pose, showing you on your best side and with ample light to show your true beauty!

In case you hadn’t realised, this rather lovely caterpillar will grow into a Grey Dagger moth!!

A Word A Week Challenge: Behind

Oh what a glorious subject but where to begin?

These photos are of Gypsy Vanners. The story was that we were watching them in a field when we noticed a young one hiding behind some of them. We soon realised he was hiding from a large stallion who had taken rather a dislike to him!

Following is a sequence of photos which are all worthy of the title ‘Behind’! Actually maybe even “Watch out, he’s behind you!”

Here you can see my grandson's hand feeding the young horse.

Then up comes the Stallion with hooves and teeth ablazing!

The young horse takes refuge behind a group of horses but the stallion is still after him….

Watch out!

The young horse manages to get away only to be found and pursued once more….

But look at these….

I have posted these photos before and apologies to anyone who may have seen them, but they just seemed to fit the “Behind’ theme rather well!

A Word A Week Challenge: Fur

I have these photos of bees and started to do some research on whether bees have fur or hair….

Oh my goodness!

It seems that opinion is divided!

So I thought I would look and see if monkeys had fur or hair….

Oh my goodness again!

It seems that opinion is divided!

(This is going to be an easy post if I just keep repeating myself!)

It was in that great divide that I decided that the bees in my photos certainly look like they have fur and that was that!

Voilà…

A Word A Week Challenge: Underneath

Underneath the surface of the water it’s ‘dog eat dog’…..or should that be ‘hermit crab eat see through shrimp’??

By the way, you may need to ‘big up’ these pictures by clicking as it might be hard to see what’s going on underneath the water!

If you look hard you can see Shauna Shrimp without a care in the world....YET!

And. of course, here she is from another angle!

What’s with all the see through nature of these critters?

 

Here's Helmut the Hermit Crab...and again, if you look carefully, you may see the sad demise of Shauna Shrimp, gripped in Helmut's vice like front claws!

I hope you like these photos….I just loved the colours in the rock pools in Devon! I especially like the green and purple swirly snails!

A Word A Week Challenge: Metallic

So there I was again, wandering about our allotment, wondering what I could put in my blog, when suddenly……

….in the words of a song, I was “Blinded by the light!”

A mesh/net that had been put over some vegetable produce to protect it, took on an amazing hue…
