One a week Photo Challenge- Turn

I had such a lot of fun with this prompt on holiday in Greece. I am going to put my favourite photo last.

Love this last one!

Please leave a link to your Turn photos over at Wild Daffodil and /or the comments below. We love seeing your pictures in the one a week photo challenge. Hard to believe we are now over the half way mark!

Next week’s prompt is Pair.

Happy Snapping!

More Wildness from Greece

It was rather nice taking the 30 days wild challenge to Greece with us as it meant¬† that we really did look about us and notice different things from the usual ancient ruins ( I don’t mean me and Mr E either) and beaches.

Just what is this ant about? (Photo by Mr E.)

The spiders on this walk were huge and all lurking in their webs awaiting dinner I assume. ( Mr E’s)

Cricket ( possibly my best picture of the challenge)

Another lizard.

Poppies- Warning you may need a lie down after the next picture.

Me returning from a wonderful walk through a river gorge ( this and the following two pics are by Mr E)

 

That was the best fun of all. I loved it. Bit chilly but simply wonderful.

Here is where I was most content and relaxed, the apartment gardens, two very happy afternoons spent here, just chilling and reading.

And you can’t write a post about Greece without a feral cat. This one guarding his boat and the nets.

A lovely holiday, I do hope you enjoyed the Greek wildness and weren’t too disturbed by one picture in particular!

Going Wild in Greece!

Ttwo days after I sign up for the 30 day wild challenge, Mr E finds a holiday in Greece. Nothing for it but to take the challenge with me to Greece. We had a lovely time and Going Wild was wonderful. I even have some half decent photos and will only inflict one rubbish one on you.

Butterflies. Ever tried to photo a butterfly that just doesn’t land on a thing? There were lots of butterflies where we were. A whole host of brown ones. Here is the absolute best picture I could take.

I promise you that if you look very very carefully with a very high-powered magnifying glass there on the bend of the path are a whole flock of butterflies. I don’t suppose that the collective noun is really flock, perhaps someone can help out here. Elsewhere there white ones, blue ones, black and white ones and the most gorgeous yellow and orange ones and I got not one picture.

No matter it gets better from here on in.

Tahdah! Lizzard.

Swallow’s nest. There were lots and lots of swallows, just like at home. I swear it is a bumper swallow year.

A wonderful walk to a waterfall.

Less bad than the butterflies but not brilliant,  there really is a dragonfly there.

And some lovely wild flowers to finish with this time. The best is to come in the next post from our sojourn in Greece.

Now to tackle the wilderness that is our garden at home.
