Picture This #288 ~ ABC

I love this theme, Debby, and had fun looking for pictures for it.  And I'm so tickled to see my little sunflower and bug as banner picture.

Catch
Catch. This fisherman attracted quite an audience when he was trying to get lunch. But this fish was too small, and after taking the hook out he let it go. I don't think the birds caught anything.

Wonderful banner by Nico. Ancient architecture at its most splendid. Age does not mar its beauty.

The banner photo from Nico was also my favourite photo

I once visited a reptile exhibition in Biel and I was sure I would find a green lizard somewhere, so here it is

Getting down on your hands and knees to take a photo in a maize field is not advisable when you reach a certain age, but I did it

I suppose the water doesn't get greener than this, thank goodness for a couple of brave goldfish.
