Above is my entry for this week’s Wordpress Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme for this week is unlikely. This may not be the best example of unlikely, but I didn’t expect to find this colorful little guy hanging out at my back door this weekend.
The theme for this week’s Wordpress Weekly Photo Challenge is Experimental. This theme is really a blank slate, it can be interpreted in so many ways…Click the link to see my photos.

This is the first visit to Cherry Grove Beach for me and my family. We are here for vacation and have enjoyed getting away and slowing down the pace of life for a few days. Our hotel fronts on the Atlantic Ocean but has a wonderful view of a tidal marsh area behind the hotel. This tidal waterway is named House Creek. It plays host to water fowl and a variety of other wild life. The creek is never the same twice since it’s water level is constantly changing with the flow of the tides.
I went to the marsh just after sunrise hoping to get some photos in the early morning light. I did manage to find some wild life to photograph but I did not find the early morning landscape photo I was hoping for. Still this was a successful outing simply because I was able to experience a new place and had photography opportunities that I do not have at home.
That evening we had a few thunderstorms passing to our north. The photograph below shows one of those storms building in the distance.
