Today I’m participating in the A Word A Week Challenge. This week’s theme is “orange”.  I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

Orange is not my favorite color but I enjoy seeing it in nature and photographing it. I spotted a little bit of orange during my trip to the East Coast. This tiger at the Washington Zoo was very interested in a robin that was standing just a few feet away from him. No need to say that the tiger was way too slow to catch it as the robin flew away.

This isn’t the robin that was standing in front of the tiger. I found this American robin at the Smithsonian gardens behind the red castle. Notice the rings on his legs. I hear there’s a Smithsonian program that tags birds and then ask people to report their sightings on a website, so the Smithsonian researchers can study bird flight paths and patterns.

The backlight at Luray Caverns in Virginia made these stalactites appear bright orange. They almost look like fabric hanging down from the ceiling.

Sea jellies (jelly fish) are hard to photograph in an aquarium because of the low light and their rapid moves. I love how bright orange this one came up, as the light was right behind it.

Of course, I couldn’t do a photo post on orange without pumpkins. A lot of pumpkins from last year’s pumpkin patch.

    Had you not mentioned it, I would have thought those stalactites were indeed fabric. It’s uncanny how much they look like dish towels and shammies!

  2. I love the tiger, but the stalactites are awesome, too.
