Scavenger Hunt

 1. Autumn

Fall asters are a favourite stopover for migrating Monarch Butterflies.

 2. Leaves

Don't you love this time of year? Some leaves are beginning to turn yellows and reds here north of Toronto.

 3. Boots

Hmmm. I wonder where these boys are planning their next adventure.

 4. Hot Beverage

Want a cup of coffee or hot chocolate? Tim Hortons is a favourite place to stop for a hot beverage when my husband and I are out and about.

5. Game

Tug of war is a fun old-fashioned game sometimes played at picnics.

I am linking to Ashley Sisk's Scavenger Hunt HERE

Monarch butterflies to tug-o-war. That must be what they mean when they say 'From the sublime to the ridiculous'. Some fine photos.

Great collection of images for your photo hunt.. I love the monarch on the asters.. And the fun tug of war game.. Happy Sunday!

I didn't know that Monarchs like asters. Maybe they will discover the ones on our property some day. I love the photo of the two adventurers-the elbow in the air as they eagerly go on their way.

Picture perfect leaves with their bright colors and details. And that butterfly shot is fabulous!

A wonderful collection. I cannot recall the last time I saw a contest of Tug-of-war being played out.

Tug of war... it's been awhile since I've done that. Is it Un-Canadian to admit I never go into a Tims?

Sylvia K said...

What a fun, colorful start for my day, EG!! I love all of them particularly the butterfly and the boots!! Hope your weekend is going well and have a wonderful new week ahead!!

These were great. The Autumn shot is so pretty and I love the colors of those leaves. Fun shot of the boys in the boots. Never heard of the place where you got your hot beverage. Tug-o-War now that is a game you don't see played much any more but it's fun.

Linda said...

Your butterfly is stunning! Love the picture of the kids playing.

Leovi said...

Wonderful compositions, I love the colors, especially the first!

I did not know Tim Hortons was in Canada. Beautiful monarch butterfly. Looks like those boys are headed for a creek or mud hole.

The butterfly and the asters are gorgeous, so beautiful! I love how you captured the bottom of the boys boots! And wonderful fall leaves.

Great photographs for the prompts, and that butterfly is absolutely gorgeous!

I did wonder what those boys were headed to do...they look like they are working with a purpose.

Great photos! We are currently camped very close to one of the winter Monarch sites. It is an amazing thing to see. There are some here right now, but in a couple of months, there will be thousands.
