One Word Photo Challenge – Chocolate

One Word Photo Challenge – Chocolate

 

Well this photo challenge I found while following Cee’s Photography. It was posted today, the 21st, and I believe goes for the week, as most of them seem to go. So here’s my interpretation of Chocolate in photography…Enjoy!

 

At first I was thinking of chocolate literally, but then eh, so I thought color…eh…thought about the so-called chocolate smelling Orchid, of which I have its hybrid cousin…eh..finally I found my interpretation in several photos i took in roughly the middle of the summer.

 

I moved my bird feeders in the spring after i had a large Sugar Maple (it was rotting & dangerous) removed. However, messy as birds are, a patch of sunflower seedlings, millet and other common seeds found in bird feed sprouted where the old feeder used to be. I could not resist the desire to let them grow and flourish. And so they did. Gold finches would come by before the heads even fully ripened and rip the seeds from them, one doing the work, the other keeping an eye out most the time. Then one day I noticed the heads were seemingly “falling over”, ha ha, no sir. The squirrels were after them…

 

And so it is…What chocolate is to people, sunflower heads are to squirrels…

      Ha ha, I doubt it. But squirrels are definitely scavengers and I have no doubt they’d eat chocolate. At first I was mad they were taking down my Sunflowers and running off with the heads but I got over it. He took it up the fence post and sat there eating it.

      Exactly! Pretty sure I’ve never seen squirrels share. People share chocolate only when it’s a big enough piece. 😉
