My adventures in the woods, streams, rivers, fields, and lakes of Michigan

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

This one should be right up my alley! After all, there are many things that are blue to be found in nature. Like flowers…

And, there are birds that are blue…

Blue jays are blue, of course.

And, this guy is wearing a blue shirt.

But how can you be


with a cute puppy like that with you? Oh, and by the way, do you know how hard it is to get a shot of nothing but blue sky?

Nope, there some sun and a tree in that one.

Nope, still some trees.

OK, I’ve had my fun, thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is gorgeous! I do love blue, and blue flowers are my favourites (it’s such an uncommon colour for flowers, compared to yellows, or whites). I love the blue skies too, it’s so odd to see the sky with no clouds or anything!

  4. I wouldn’t have done so well with this one. Every time I bring home a blue flower it turns out to be purple. Damn color blindness. You’ve certainly got some beautifu blue ones growing there.

    • Thanks, it was a bit of a challenge to find blue flowers, most of our blue flowers here bloom in early summer it seems. It was a bit early for them.

    I agree that it is hard to photo a blue sky. I like the flowers.

    • Thank you! I suppose that I could have used a zoom lens to focus on a small part of a blue sky, but I left my point and shoot at its widest angle to shoot those, as I loved that much clear blue sky!

    • Thank you! You’ll be seeing blue jays until you’re tired of them, or I actually get a good shot of one. πŸ˜‰

  8. Having the blues doesn’t have to be dull or teary, that’s for sure. I love blue. True blue flowers are so rare, so I have a good collection and snap them up whenever I find a new specimen. Thanks for posting!
