Sunday Stills ~ The Color Orange


It's way too early for much color here in Eastern Oregon yet, but I found a couple of bright spots this past week to submit for this week's Sunday Stills photo challenge...




This lil' guy...er...should I say Lady...was
trying to hide on my drive lines at the barn.

I take this as a definite sign of Spring!!







Of course here is the every day sight of lichen growing
on the rocks in the high desert...it's still nice
to see beautiful spots of color in the
sometimes drab landscape.




Check out the other participant's "The Color Orange" by going HERE in the comments section. Or join us next week as Ed posts the new Sunday Stills challenge for next week on Sunday.

First, I love the new header! Very representative of you. We had a ladybug in the kitchen about a month ago; I never thought to use the photo of that! They are one bug I don't mind. The lichen are a beautiful splash of color.

The lichen is very cool! And we saw our first lady bug of the season yesterday. It landed on Zip's nose.

The lichen is cool! We have different colors of lichen around our mountains, and the colors are delightful.
The lady bug is cute. And what make the photo so awesome is the color pop against the texture of the rope.

You did good!
