This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge theme is lines. Nature is full of lines, but they’re not always straight, vertical or horizontal so it can take a little time to spot them in the scene.

Here is a selection of a few photos that display all sorts of lines. Remember you can click on each image for a larger view.

I took this first photo at SeaWorld San Diego. I love the lines formed by the legs of the various flamingos in the shot. By the way, check out the duck that’s walking in front of the flamingo in the water. He thinks he’s one of them but his legs are about two feet too short!

I love the lines on this tiger swallowtail butterfly’s wings.

I love the numerous thin lines the petals form on this bottle brush tree flower. Also take a closer look at the leaves on the left and how they’re outlined with a lighter shade of green.

The pistils of this yellow lilium start in a straight line but take a vertical turn halfway.

Spider webs are made up of many lines and the morning dew can make them more obvious to the eye. You can see more photos of these spider webs here.

My last photo for this theme is an ice plant lined up with frost, leaf by leaf. The brown blade of grass in the background also displays lines of frost. This is one of my favorite photos of frost I’ve taken so far. You can see more photos of frost here and here.
