K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I was in charge of setting the theme for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, giving you the prompt of; The end of summer.

*****DON’T FORGET: There’s still time for y’all to submit your suggestions for next week’s challenge.*****

There are many directions in which we could take that idea, but I took my inspiration from the busy buzzing of insects in the garden. There were countless bees and hoverflies rushing around to make the most of the weekend’s glorious sunshine, as they collected what remaining pollen they could find. I also spotted a tiny snail, sunbathing on one of our final gazania flowers.

See how summery K’lee is HERE later.

Now it’s your turn to make this drizzly Monday sunny and bright…

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.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

We are getting in amongst the undergrowth for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, since I set the theme of Creepy Crawlies on Friday, encouraging y’all to get some entomological specimens for us to study.

I saw a spider and a fly, dangerously close together on a clematis in the garden…

…but I had more success with our newly blooming pink sedum, where I got a few nice shots of a busy honey bee and a tiny hover fly, to which I added a few from the archives; a lily beetle, a fearsome looking scorpion and the impressive but harmless hornet moth.

K’lee brings you his insectile interpretation of the prompt HERE.

But now let’s see what the great hive mind has to offer…

Summer blooms in the garden.

I thought I’d take the opportunity of a day off work to capture the sudden burst of colour in the garden, brought on by the arrival of this strange thing called “summer”, which we are experiencing in the UK due to some sort of meteorological anomaly, (if my wife is to be believed).

So PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK to see the pictures over on Photo Sans Frontiers, my photographic sister blog.

Thanks.
