Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge: Yellow

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.

  1. These are gorgeous photos, I love the sunflower and then the last photo! Beautiful! I love yellow too, such a happy colour 🙂

    Thanks for taking part in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge, I hope you’ll join us on Friday for the colour Orange 🙂

  2. Wowza, you have some stunning nature images on your blog. I love doing the same type of photography, although don’t have the flowers to attract the subjects … might need to think about that next year. I read that you were starting to do portraits — good for you. I started doing the same this last year, and have been surprised at how fun, hard, rewarding, tiring, and addictive it all can be. Good luck to you!
