Project 365/187 – Green & Red

Purple Pickerel Rush

Rushes raising elegantly from the cool waters covered by water lilies.

Reaching towards the sky in search of light.

Water lilies wait for middle summer to show their hidden treasures below.

With tiny tadpoles that grow into a brilliantly green Southern Leopard Frogs.

Sitting on the muddy banks of the lake, hoping for a bug to fly closely by.

The Orchard Oriole sings boldly with his jumbled song.

Enjoying the sweet nectar of a Trumpet Vine.

And hidden in the woods is the brilliantly colored Summer Tanager.

With a lilting tune that creates a forest symphony.

  1. Emily, Emily, you keep outdoing yourself, these are AMAZING! Love the tanager, the oriole, the froggie who practically blends into his landscape, the water lilies. But I have to say I LOVE the texture and almost monochromatics of the first image – the purple pickerel rush. Tell me, is the very tip of the leaves – the PURPLE?? πŸ™‚

    • Ok..I’m back..actually that plant has purple flowers. It just happened that that selection didn’t have any. I didn’t like my pics of those that did. The tanager was awesome, the frog with his bright green too cool ! Thank you so much for enjoying this post as much as I enjoyed exploring.
