Our subject this week on Friday My Town Shoot Out is... The Color Yellow! Have I mentioned I love the color yellow? That deep delicious shade of orangy yellow..like in the gum ball machines? Yes..yes I do!

Soooooooo..here are a few of my yellow flower shots. I know..archives again..but the weather is getting better and things are starting to pop out of the ground..and I will have more time..cause it is spring break tomorrow. Whoooooooot!!! I get a couple days off..NATURE HIKE!!!

Here is a bitsy white crab spider on a daisy..


A sweet little yellow mum blossom!


A yellow water droplet..


A yellow crab spider..isn't she beautiful.I know there is an ewww factor..but look at that color!!!


Black eyed Susans...lovely.


Closer still...


Ya know I love my bees!


These bitsy fellows are the babies of that beautiful yellow mama above.


In the Spring we must have these.. frosythias!


And these.......dandelions

What would spring be without an Iris or two?


So as I wait for all these beauties to appear in my yard once again this Spring...I take the pictures and turn them into things like this..with my own twist of course!

Have a wonderful weekend all!! Hugs, Sarah

I adore that daffodil, but that black eyed susan is a close second! I love the color yellow also, and blue, and green, and red, and... :)

Dandelions get a bad rap as weeds.

Taylor Lynn said...

Gorgeous photos, I love them! Aren't dandelions so pretty in pictures? I got some great dandelion shots last April... I never really tried taking photos of them until I walked around the yard with the camera and no real plan. Then it struck me- DANDELIONS! Sometimes the everyday things I never thought to photograph turn out to be the best pictures. :)

Fantastic Blog. My favorite is the larger Yellow crab spider. I'm still looking for the honeybees, we seem to have very few at this time.

Sarah, these are positively gorgeous. I love the spiders! They are elegant and perfect on the flower petals, I can't believe they sat still for you to catch them in a photo. Love it.

Pauline said...

Love your spiders and bees! As always it's impossible to pick a favourite, all your shots are always amazing!

Camella Black said...

I love them all... even the spiders, note I was once bitten by one of those little green crab spiders and actually had a bad reaction to it. I never believed something so small could do the damage he/she did.

I also love the little fairy people!

Jama said...

I just love your collection of macros, so beautiful!

I'm not crazy about spiders, in fact I have a real fear factor, but you are right, the color on that yellow spider is incredible and so is your photo. Love all the flower shots. So very pretty.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Those white spiders are very cool. I don't think I've ever seen anything like them before.

As always, all your photos are fantastic, but my very favorite of all is your artwork at the end :-)

Happy weekend, Sarah. xo jj

Doreen said...

Cinner said...
