Hi everyone, this is Mitch, and I'll be your host for the final challenge of 2013. 'Picture This' will be taking a break for Christmas, so no theme will be posted on Saturday 28th December. We'll be back to normal on Saturday 4th January.
I wanted to avoid what everyone else is doing at this time of year, namely a Christmas theme, so instead I'm asking you to share some of your favourite photos you took in 2013. You can post up to 5 photos if you wish. **** IMPORTANT NOTE*** If you use Flickr, when you go to grab the HTML code for each photo, please note there are now THREE options: 'Embed', 'HTML' and 'BBcode'. Mine had defaulted to 'Embed', had to change it back to 'HTML'. If you leave it set at 'Embed' it'll embed the set the photo is in, or even your photostream (you'll know if it has coz each photo will have forward/back arrows on either side of it). Here are mine: 1) A Chaffinch, taken during my annual Spring trip to Bosherston Lily Ponds.
2) Sleepy Meerkat, at Manor House Wildlife Park
3) Abandoned Hopi dwelling, Wupatki National Monument, Arizona
4) Calendula, taken at Aberglasny Gardens, Wales
5) Bumblebee on an Echinacea flower, Stackpole Mencap Gardens, Wales.
