Lingering Summer

Woodland Sunflowers

Summer Haiku (Linger)

Lingering flowers
Stretch toward the summer sky
Knowing fall is near

Are you ready for seasonal transition where you live?

Taking on the heat
Flutter by, my butterfly
Summer on your wings

Hummingbird His and Her’s

His


Isn’t this male ruby throated hummingbird handsome? He showed off his bright color as he approached the feeder for a drink of nectar.

Below, is a beautiful female hummingbird. She put on an air show fluttering around the same feeder for sweet nectar!

Her’s

I haven’t yet been able to capture a picture of two birds at the feeder at the same time. But, maybe this will be the summer it happens! The little birds will be around into September!

July Haiku (Benched)

July presses on
Forcing respite from the heat
Benched relief of shade

Let’s talk about the weather. It’s hot. Heatwave hot. But I’m not complaining; I reserve that for the winter. I can handle the heat. Let me rephrase. I can handle the heat with a little help from a seat in the shade and air conditioning! Happy summer, y’all!

Summer Haze

Valley Overlook

Valley Overlook

The view from this overlook on Mill Mountain is superb, even when haze settles in the valley. You can still admire the beautiful blue mountains and the city landmarks below. From a distance, the view is framed by a grand tree, creating a mix of sunlight and shadows near the deck. I can feel the warmth of the day just by looking at the scene!

Country Market-The Changing Seasons 08

The lazy, purple hazy, daze of summer has come upon the country market. The air is heavy and it is hot and humid. My eyes settle on deep greens, pinks and purples. A Silver-Spotted Skipper butterfly is drawn to rest on vibrant flowering plants of the same colors. Summer is winding down and I hope the swirl is slow.

This is my eighth installment for Cardinal Guzman’s Monthly Photo Challenge. We are to post 5-20 pictures each month at a nearby location to showcase the changing of seasons and hone our photography skills. You should check out his photos and the links that he posts to other entries you may also enjoy viewing.
