ABC Wednesday

I is for ice.







I is for inspiration

and instruments.
I is for Indigo Bunting
and interesting 1928 children's books.
I is for insects on Ironweed

and the Idigenous people of the Prairie.

Happy ABC Wednesday.

Very creative post, Sherry! I wouldn't have expected the ice:) I don't look forward to an icy winter, but you have reminded me that one good thing about it is that it does provide some great photo opportunities. For now, I prefer seeing the Monarchs on the ironweed:)

Marvelous and, yes, very creative post! Great "I" words and terrific photos! Love them all!

Have a great day, Sherry!

These are fabulous photos. I really love the second photo with the ice frozen atop the berries, and the interesting childrens book. All great and wonderful I words. I enjoyed your post.

A nice collection of I's indeed, but I fell for those frozen berries.

You have so many "I" words here, and the ice really caught me by surprise! Love the icicle with a frozen drip.

On behalf of the ABC Team, thanks for your post.

A lovely I post Sherry, as creative and beautiful as always. Like Rose I think I will concentrate more on the Monarchs than the ice for now ;) our nights are turning chilly already!

Beautiful sequence - the ice shots are stunning!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Ice! Well, I guess this is a hint of what we'll be seeing soon. ;-) The butterflies will soon be gone for this year.

I love the Indigo Bunting! How pretty he is!

The children's book is delightful - how funny the illustrations look to us, now. Look at the shine on those children's hair! LOL!

Beautiful ice pictures too.

I do so love indigo buntings. Their colour is so vibrant and cheerful!

Chris said...

I particularly enjoyed the ice photos, Sherry. The colours are beautiful! Hope you are well and enjoying your garden still. The days are shortening here :-( but as we both know there is something new in every season :-)

Wendy said...

I love the indigo bunting. So colourful. Did not expect the ice pictures either! But it is beautiful. I look forward to taking some ice pics this winter. You are right. This new camera is opening a whole other world for me. And I never thought I'd enjoy taking pictures so much.

The monarch is such a stunning butterfly. I have not attempted any flying insects or birds yet. But that will come. For now I am happy to take flowers and insects that don't move so much. LOL!

Fall is almost here.

So many beautiful photos!! I think my favourite has to be the icicle with the droplet falling off the end!! But the female cardinal in the previous post, with the sunlight streaming through her tailfeathers!!! And I had never realized how the horns of the bison have different shapes!!! Not to mention all the information!!
Thank you!!
