I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is color. The goal is to select photos that feature one color prominently in the frame. What a fun challenge!
For this specific challenge, I decided to share photos I took in a single day, while visiting the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. There sure is a lot of color there if you look closely.

My first photo is of a busy bee on bright yellow flowers. I’ll share more photos of bees on these flowers in an upcoming post in the next week or so, so stay tuned.
I wanted to photograph this protea pin cushion up close and I used the purple flowers as a contrasting background. The bright blue sky helps too. If you like protea pin cushion flowers, you can view more here.
Besides lilac blooms, I’m not sure there’s anything more beautiful than wisteria blooms. If you like wisteria, I’ll be posting more photos of it in the next week or two. Remember to subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already.
If you follow this post, you just saw the photo below this morning, but I wanted to share it with the people who do the WordPress weekly photo challenge. I really like how the pink flowers stand out next to this amazing giant owl butterfly.
I used the last photo in a post earlier this week but I thought it’d fit perfectly here too. These fluffy yellow blooms belong to a very large tree that was covered with thousands of them.
I hope you enjoyed my photo picks for this colorful theme!
Wow!!!! Your photos are stunning. Cheers!
Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed them! And thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment.
That pin cushion flower is so neat. I want those in my yard…although what grows in San Diego probably wouldn’t make it through an Idaho winter. Love all your color photos. Amazing.
I’m not sure how cold tolerant it is. It’s actually from South Africa, so I don’t know how cold it gets in the winter. It freezes here every winter, but not down to your temperatures. It might sit in a bulb for the winter, so you might want to look into it. The blooms are very cool!
Yeah, they were super cool. I love flowers like that. Maybe its a bulb I’d have to dig up and keep in my fridge during the winter.
It’s worth checking it out. At least you know they’ll do well in the heat of the summer.
So many colors, so little time! Wonderful pics.
Thank you! You can definitely see spring is here.

Gorgeous photos! I can’t help but get down and photograph flowers too! The colors are so vibrant in your photographs and that Owl butterfly is of another world! Thank you for sharing.
You’re welcome, and thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
Good shots, Milka!
Thank you, Stefano!

FANTASTIC shots, Milka. My fave is the pincushion flower.
Thank you, Nancy! I really like that one too. I have a few others from the same flowers I need to post all together, including one with a different depth of field from the same angle that’s pretty interesting.
Beautiful! I love the wisteria and the bee on the yellow flowers. The butterfly is amazing up close like that too.
If you liked the bee, you’ll love the photo I’m using in today’s post. It was a great catch!
Huge fan of wisteria but all your photos are gorgeous, Milka. So many doing the Weekly Challenge, it’s hard to get around.
Thank you! I’m going to do a photo post just on that wisteria, hopefully some time next week. I love wisteria blooms.
