Another week of summer has come and gone! And, another summer scavenger hunt is complete. Great prompts once again and lots of fun finding them! I was looking for...
butterflies, sunglasses, flowers, sprinkler, ice cream, watermelon, and relaxing.
The first prompt was the hardest...butterfly. I searched high and low for one of these elusive beauties! They seem to be so scarce this year. I finally gave up and posted this image. It seemed a fake butterfly would have to do!
Later in the week I traveled to my daughter's home to spend a few days. Needing a break from the car ride, I bought a sandwich and stopped at a little city park for lunch. A park which just happened to have a small flower garden that was attracting...butterflies! I rushed back to the car, grabbed my camera, and took shots of butterflies until I was just too hot to take any more!
Sunglasses, those are something I use regularly. Once I got started, my sunglasses were suddenly everywhere!
Of course, you can't have a summer scavenger hunt without some pretty flowers.
To keep the lawns and flowers pretty we need to drag out the sprinklers several times a week. This little squirrel braved the sprinkler to get some of the sunflower seeds I put out for the birds.
Summertime just wouldn't be complete without some homemade Milky Way Ice Cream.
As I mentioned before, I went to my daughter's this week. I knew we were going to spend one day on the lake, so I took along a watermelon for us to eat and to use for this last prompt. I was going to make watermelon balls and place them in a bowl for the shot. When my grandson, Josh, started helping me, I knew this shot was so much better than just a bowl of watermelon!
Our last prompt was relaxing. Photography is more relaxing to me than anything else.
These summer scavenger hunts are not always easy, but they have been fun. They have also gotten me outside on these hot summer days.
I certainly hope you're finding ways to enjoy your summer!
