Weekly Photo Challenge–Monochromatic

Weekly Photo Challenge–Monochromatic

“This week, share with us your monochromatic images. Be calculating and creative in choosing your subject and focal point; resist the urge to simply take a photo of something with a single color range. Go beyond the obvious choice, and have fun!”

Few of my photos qualify for the monochromatic description. I’ve been a bit under the weather since our weekend trip, which gave me time to look through the photos on hand for something to share.

Eyed Click Beetle

Upon exiting the hiking trail, we walked along the road on the way to our car. Hubby happened to look down and saw this Eyed Click Beetle. They are typically 1″  to 1-3/4″  inches (2.54-4.44 cm) in size. They fly in deciduous woodlands in spring and summer, and prey on wood-boring beetle larvae in decaying logs. When overturned, they can flip themselves into the air with an audible “click.” We kindly moved it out of the road to safety. 

 

Today, I nominate Dorothee Lang at Once Upon Each Day to post Five Photos, Five Stories.

The rules:  1) To post a photo a day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo.  It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph. And 2) each day, nominate another blogger for the challenge.
