Orange You Glad It's Friday #1

On Monday, I posted a picture of a single butterfly on a thistle. It had been a goal to capture the butterfly on a flower after a request message I received on this blogs Facebook page. While I was satisfied with the image I posted Monday, I was more pleased with this one because of the three butterflies all at once!

After much deliberation, I have decided to begin a photo meme on Hood Photo Blog! I have always wanted to host a meme, and the inspiration came to me.

I love the color ORANGE. It is a challenging color to come by sometimes, but with the coming autumn season, there will be orange in abundance. So my photo meme theme will be based after my beloved favorite color.

Every Friday 12:01am PST, I will open the blog up for posts. Rules are the same as at most other memes. Post a picture that you have taken or have permission to use with a little or a lot of orange, share your link below, visit others, leave a comment if you wish.

Instead of me posting something orange every week, I will feature a favorite photo or two from the previous week with a link to the photographers blog. (Today, since it was the first week, I have posted my own work, but in the future it could be yours!)

Be sure to include an Orange You Glad It's Friday Badge or link in your post.To add either badge, just copy and paste the HTML code from below!


Most importantly, spread the word! This is a new meme and the only way to get the word out is to share, share, share!

So... Welcome to Orange You Glad It's Friday (or Orange Friday for short!)

(PS) You can also get updates and reminders about Orange You Glad It's Friday on Facebook.

Signs of change

In gardens around the area, you can spot signs of the ever looming seasonal change. August is nearing its end, and with September comes the true turn of autumn to come. Lots of flowers are starting to dry up and go to seed.

Ever Had The Feeling You Were Being Watched?

On Saturday, my husband, son and I joined up with my brother in law and some friends to check out the new frisbee golf (folf) course at Blue Lake Park, about a 10 minute drive from my home. The course was long, but we had fun. I just walked along pushing the stroller and took out my camera a few times for an occasional photo. At one of the holes, my brother in law spotted this tiny frog watching us from a small hole in a nearby tree. He was only about the size of a nickel. He sat patiently while I snapped away.

Ask And You Shall Receive

Someone posted a message on my Hood Photography Facebook Page (which you should take a moment and go like, BTW!) saying that they loved my bees on flowers photos, and wanted to request a butterfly on flowers photo if I could. Well, ask and you shall receive. I went on a walk with some family this weekend and the area we were at was covered in these blooming thistles, and the butterflies were all over them. I have one more that I took that I love that I will post later in the week also!
