Ragtag Daily Prompt : Redux

Here? Japan? or where?

For fun I’m doing a first prompt and a last prompt.  The first prompt is “redux” in the Ragtag Daily Prompt series, Fridays is hosted by CuriousSteph. A happy hello to RDP!

And the last Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is “All-Time Favorites”.  I’m sad to be bidding the Weekly Photo Challenge adieu as it’s been a great community and fun to see everyone’s pictures from around the world.

So for one of my choices, I’m digging out a picture from Japan — hard to say if it’s my favorite as I lost a lot on an old hard drive but it’s one of my favorites.

So for Arizona? I think this butterfly one sipping nectar, his wings dusted with pollen because I almost never get a good closeup of an insect. I’m a bit slow when I’m shooting so most of the time they fly away before I get the shot.

  1. Wonderful photos, especially the close up of the butterfly. Great timing. Butterflies move so fast but this one looked hungry and decided to stay still. Sad to see the last photo challenge and agree with you that it’s been great following along and seeing everyone’s contribution 🙂

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I’m sad to see the DP photo challenge ending too. The DP had the biggest community and people looked at each other’s photos which was very cool.
      Have you heard of Cee’s or Dutch’s photo challenge? I do theirs sometimes. It’s not as interactive but they’re fun to do. I am collecting info on photo challenges and so far I have these gathered

    1. I think it’s an oni which is a demon but in this case, he and his brother guard the gates of a shrine to scare away all evil. I just don’t remember which shrine.
