Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify

dsc06190

I found this charming tableau in a village in Switzerland. An ordinary log had been transmogrified into a monster; a rather benign monster, judging by the waggish expression of the gnome next to it!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine

These photos were taken worlds apart. The dragonfly alighted on our  boat while we were ambling down a quiet river in France. Fortunately I had my camera at the ready for other wonders, but this elegant creature stopped just long enough for me to get a photo. It was his colour that caught my eye but, just for a moment he sat on the rail and shone!

The other photo was taken on a cattle farm  in the north of South Africa. It was last winter and we were on holiday there. The winter veld is a dismal brown as there is no rain for months on end and the winds were bitter. We had found a sunny sheltered spot where we could cuddle up to our mugs of tea. The turquoise flash of this lovely lizard engaged my attention and I was glad  was able to get a photo because the click of the camera chased him back into a crack in the plaster. It wasn’t until I saw the two pictures together I realised that they were almost a matched pair with their brilliant colour and jewel-like shine.
