I stumbled across a fun photo challenge going on right now called “Shades of Autumn”. Each week a different color is featured and this week’s color is yellow. Yellow, sunshiny and happy, has always been at the top of my list of favorite colors. As a teenager, I chose a yellow bedroom set to surround myself in mellow yellow. Today, my gardens are filled with loads of bright yellow flowers. Here are some of my favorite photos that feature this cheerful color:
A sunflower, of course!
Another sunflower, this one being visited by a bee!
A yellow and black bumblebee on pretty yellow and orange flowers. Wonderful YELLOW!!!
The underside of a giant swallowtail’s wings is, guess what?!!! Yellow!!! Here’s one that recently emerged from its’ chrysalis hanging from pretty yellow zigzag goldenrod.
Here’s the same giant swallowtail drying its’ wings in preparation for its’ first flight!
Lastly, here’s a photo of beautiful Upper Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The falls have a wonderful golden hue which beautifully complements the golden yellow of the autumn leaves.
