Sunday Stills Photo Challenge: Violet

Thank you to Cee Neuner for alerting me to this challenge! I’m afraid I’m going to use some of the same subjects for this particular challenge that comes to us by Terri Webster Schrandt of Second Wind Leisure Perspectives.

These wild violets have just a hint of purple in their blossoms.
This iris has two shades of a violet nature.
Our wisteria is just starting to bloom. When it become full-fledged, it is a stunning sight to behold.

One more for the road…

I came across Purple Dog just yesterday. In the background, you can see his friend, Pink Monkey.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Birds Seen in the Last Two Weeks


You can hardly accuse me of being a master of bird photography. As you can see, my best shots come when the subject is a statue; however, I’d feel remiss if I didn’t participate in this wonderful photo challenge. I’m a firm believer in the adage, “Practice makes perfect,” so I’ll keep trying.
