K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I’m at the helm of this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge post, having asked you to get Up close and personal for your weekend’s homework.

As usual I had nothing specific in mind when I set the theme, deciding to search outside for inspiration and it didn’t take long to arrive.

I was sitting having a coffee in the sunshine yesterday morning and noticed a few seed pods on the table, from one of the many trees which overhang the back of our garden, like this one…

…which isn’t unusual, so I didn’t pay it any attention, although there was something slightly different about this particular seed.

Again, nothing all that unusual, certainly not worth investigating any more closely…until it moved.

On its own.

I was also playing with some new editing apps at the weekend and I made this rather effective image, bringing all the flower borders in very close indeed, to form a lush little “garden planet”.

K’lee gets just close enough for comfort HERE, go check him out.

Now it’s your chance to shine.


To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, (or just, you know, whenever) add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

  1. I love the circular garden you created with your app. As to your bug, they are called katydid aka leaf bugs. They are related to crickets and cicadas. They are plentiful in North America and Australia. But I do there are genuses in other countries, too (obviously).

      1. Oops! Slap me and call me a git. I had done an unsuccessful reverse image search, but I was so sure it was a species of katydid. When I was able to get a better look at the video, I realized it is (most likely) a species of cicada. There are 2, 500 species of cicadas on the planet. The only one known to be NATIVE to England is the New Forest Cicada, but there are plenty of other species around the world, including Europe.
