January Photo Scavenger Hunt
1. Something new
Pussy Willows with new furry catkins :)
Taken on a bright sunny day this month, a bit of everything included in this landscape.
Walking down a trail, I noticed a handmade sign beside a pile of branches!
The sight of this Trumpeter Swan entering the water reminded me of the stance that might be taken as cold water is about to come in contact with the lower body!
Here comes the hummingbird with its tongue out ready to feed from the nectar in the feeder bottle ~
6. Up high
Since this month was fairly mild, I took many opportunities to get outside, sharing the blue sky weather with wisps of clouds. I was wondering if the cloud at the top right would be considered a Lenticular cloud.
Also, the Pileated woodpecker flew away after carving my tree, landing up high on a utility pole.
Here's is a very exciting photo of two containers of cheese and a jar of cranberry orange sauce on a shelf in my fridge.
A log with tufts of moss and a lichen or two ~ oh, and a nail...
A dilapidated boat hidden amongst the bushes ~ I wonder if Benjamin Daniel used it for a forest fort??
Along with the blue sky, and blue stellar jays shown in my previous post, I also spotted some blue berries on a bush. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the bush, but someone may be able to enlighten me.
Finally I was able to take a photo of the big Husky that lives across the street. The dog takes up the majority of the pick-up truck bed. Whenever the Husky hears a siren from a police car or firetruck, he howls like this... (a youtube video of another Husky howling at a siren). The rest of the time, he's very quiet :)
This photo came as a pleasant surprise. I was trying to take a photo of the hummingbird in the bush just outside the front door like this:
However, in one shot, the camera focused on the Christmas ornament that was still hanging outside on the branch ~ and this is what appeared when I downloaded my photos ~
So that's it for January photos ~ to see more selections, please click on this link, and once again thanks to Made with Love, who just returned from Hawaii!...for hosting these monthly challenges.
