WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: THE WORLD THROUGH YOUR EYES (WELL, AN AGAVE ATTENUATA THROUGH THEM, ANYWAY)


I HANG AROUND HERE QUITE OFTEN; ON BEES-INESS, YOU KNOW ...

I HANG AROUND HERE QUITE OFTEN; ON BEES-INESS, YOU KNOW …

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU'RE LOOKING AT?

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU’RE LOOKING AT?

I'M OUTTA HERE!

I’M OUTTA HERE!

ANOTHER THING YOU CAN LOOK AT THROUGH  'CENTURY PLANT' BLOOMS ...

ANOTHER THING YOU CAN LOOK AT THROUGH ‘CENTURY PLANT’ BLOOMS …

 

And now that this challenge has given me your attention, may I again request that you give urgent consideration to voting for Kate to become the Penguin Wayfarer?  She is so close to being in contention, and no matter if you have a deep interest in English countryside and history or not, and regardless of where you may live, you are bound to find what she produces on her wanderings highly entertaining.  So it is in your own interests to use this link before 24th June!

    Were you searching for an insect in the plant? It must be tiny and yet you still managed to see it

      I’d love to hear how someone whose only language is English would try to pronounce that!
      It can take ten years or more before the flower spike appears. This species doesn’t die after sending one up, unlike the true ‘Century Plant’ – americana – which actually takes about 30 years and then dies.

    I noticed that one can vote again and again for Kate! Maybe that’ll help to increase her number of votes.

    Love that last picture. My ship coming in, perhaps??

    Wonderful shots, Col. That last one is brilliant. 🙂 Praying Mantises aren’t my favourite goggas. I know they’re harmless and good, but why do they have to look so creep? I already voted for Kate. Wish we could vote more than once.

    Weird and wonderful. I voted for Kate last week too, but she’s a long way behind: she needs more votes.
