Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

In honor of the first day of Spring, I’ve changed my header* and added a late entry to the “inside” challenge theme. While visiting my sister’s home in Richmond last Spring, I found her beautifully blooming azaleas were attracting Tiger Swallowtail butterflies and bumblebees. Here are just a few of the hundreds of shots I took of these insects plunging “inside” these blooms for nectar and pollen.

Josh R. suggests: Showing things relative to other things allows you to emphasize a particular subject (a ship in a bottle), show juxtaposition (a clown drinking in a bar) or abstract themes (oil in a puddle). The “inside” idea can be as wide-open as your imagination wants to make it. From the simple to the absurd, it works on almost any level. Click HERE for more “inside” entries.
