Square Perspective #31

It is only 8:30 pm CDT here in Chicagoland, so I’m still on time for the LAST (Boo hoo!) day of Becky’s Square Perspectives!

Camouflage is nature’s way of helping animals protect themselves. Like this little frog…

From this little guy’s perspective, this lily pad is the ideal place to sit and take a rest. And perhaps – if he’s lucky – catch an insect flying by!

I couldn’t believe my luck to spy this frog on a crinkly lily pad! At first, I thought it was fake! But later when I passed it again, the frog was gone.

Taken at Chicago Botanic Gardens on July 23, 2020.

CFFC: Mostly Monochrome

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge continues with the theme of colors. This week the topic is basically oneĀ  color or hue.

This photo was not shot nor edited black & white. The trees and clouds actually looked like this on a spring day in northern Wisconsin.

Some animals are the color they are to blend in with their environment, such as hyraxes who hide among the rocks where they live, mongoose who inhabit giant anthills, and even a hippo with just its eyes & ears above the water. (All photos taken in Tanzania.)
