Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine…hidden

“Shine” is the theme for the photo challenge this week.  Nancy asks if we’ve had something catch our eye that was bright or shiny, then had to look again to see what was really there.  Last weekend, while on a trip back to Nebraska for my 45th high school reunion (a wonderful time), we stopped for lunch at the Iowa Machine Shed restaurant.  Besides amazing food, they had farm equipment of all types and, along the side of the building, some enormous sunflowers. The sun shining through the flowers caught my eye, but this little critter made me take another glance.

For anyone who’s seen “Galaxy Quest”, I must admit this guy reminds me a bit of Sarris.  🙂

    Sci-Fi indeed. This is a wonderful capture and the colors are a perfect combination for the subject.

    • Thanks very much, Allan. I always appreciate your taking time to comment cogently on my blog. I hope your weekend is off to a great start.


      • Allan G. Smorra says:

        So far, so good, Janet. I hope yours goes well also.

      • I’ve been to the farmers market, made several batches of applesauce, done a load of laundry, am working on reading and commenting on blogs and on several blog posts, as well as watching some college football. Life is good.

      • Allan G. Smorra says:

        Find the eye of that storm and chill out for a bit, Janet…

      • It’s been very leisurely, Allan. My husband’s off on a two-day bike ride and I have the day (and tomorrow as well) to myself. Oh, yes, I also did some reading in there over a Starbucks mocha, one of my few coffee indulgences.

      • Allan G. Smorra says:

        I had one of their Chili Mochas yesterday—one of my seasonal indulgences. I’m not a Mocha type but this one and the Sea Salt Mocha are my weaknesses when they are featured.

    Great capture, Janet!

  5. Wow. Iowa must be like from outer space with critters like this one.
    Great shot. Such an eye.

  8. That’s incredibly dramatic light.

  9. Anita says:

    Lucky that you spotted the critter, Janet!

  10. Very eye-catching, my dear. Well done.

    • Thanks, Alicia. Nice to have you drop by. I miss the FF group, but not enough to go back to reading all those stories each week, whether good or not. 🙂 Hope all’s well with you.


  11. I love the soft light, and details.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
