Photo Blogging Challenge (April 2017): Color

Color/Colour - That is the theme for April. We were blessed with a good mix of rain and sun this early part of the year so we have some color to share.

This little guy is cute but he/she sure makes a mess. A mud wren or swallow of some kind. Nasty nest in the house and poop everywhere. I'm going to have to figure out a way to keep them away from the house next year.

Again, the weather has been great but so much has been going on that we haven't had much camping opportunity. The council put on a camporee at a local college and that got some of our newer guys out to at least get a starter course in setting up camp and cooking. The morning started early!

After a ton of work, I finally got the pool looking good and then my rock guys came back to work on the patio and it's cloudy once again due to rock dust. But at least I have evidence...

I found these pretty little buttercups out on a walk.

Hello, Mr. Tree Frog. We have a ton of these guys around the house. Makes for quite the chorus in the evening and through the night. Also gives our hawk a bit of a snack. :o

The tree frog is definitely my favourite! The pool is looking mighty good, though, too!
Hope you can find some time for camping!

What a great collection of photos! I gotta say I love the frog, too.

Lovely photos and the pool reflection image is superb with eyecatching patterns and tones. Frogs at night time seems so unusual to me, we don't really get to hear frogs chorus in the UK, more like birds at dawn and police cars at night. But, I'd love to hear the frogs.

I'm not an overnight camper. I go when my stepmom camps. We stay for the day, wait for the awesome sunset, bbq some s'mores then hightail it out of there before the mosquitos feast on us. Great pic of the sunset! I had one on my monthly challenge too.

What is a little bird poop between friends? :)

I love camping.... my parents took us camping a lot when we were little and then I carried on the tradition. We haven't done it in years... perhaps it is time.

The frog is my favorite... great color and a great subject.

Such a nice set of photos as always, Mike. The water shot is cool. Guess you will just have to work to get it all clear again!
