This photo was taken Monday morning after the rain clouds cleared.  The sun was warm and gorgeous, can you feel it?  To see a more high-key photograph of this subject, a yellow daisy, visit Monochromia.  Which do you like better?

There is a group on Instagram that has daily theme inspirations: @9Vaga_dailytheme9. This week color was the theme with each day being a different color.  Wednesday was yellow and Thursday was green.   The images above are a few that I posted on my Instagram page: @robyngrahamphotography.  I hope you enjoy the images. I had fun playing with light and shadow.

And, if you are on Instagram, please follow me…I post images almost every day…Much more frequently than I get to blog!

 

 

The Ladybug at Sunset

Getting Untangled

A small speckled visitor
Wearing a crimson cape
Brighter than a cherry
Smaller than a grape
A polka-dotted someone
Walking on my wall
A black-hooded lady
In a scarlet shawl.
~Joan Walsh Anglund

Working her Way Up

 

Oh ladybug, I wish you joy
As you complete your garden chores.
I’d like to put aside my work
And join you in the out-of-doors!
~Author Unknown

On the Edge

The Ladybug wears no disguises.
She is just what she advertises.
A speckled spectacle of spring,
A fashion statement on the wing….
A miniature orange kite.
A tiny dot-to-dot delight.
~J. Patrick Lewis, “The Little Buggers”
