Sometimes I just cannot resist a juicy challenge! A few weeks ago I was invited to a really fun new group here on ipernity called "Bokeh Thursday". There are lots of theme groups out there to help motivate, inspire, educate and entertain members, but this one was a group I thought I could actually participate in while being committed to my 365 Project, since most of my pictures are all about bokeh!

To make things more interesting, there is a new theme every week. This week's theme was the letter "T"--anything that starts with T could be your subject. I actually had a hard time getting to sleep last night as I lay in bed thinking about subjects I could photograph that started with T... texture... turtle... thread... television... tool... toy... turkey... the list grew in my mind until I suddenly remembered what's in full bloom outside and screaming for me to photograph it...TEASEL!!! And...TAR WEED!! And then, when I woke up this morning and happily immersed myself taking pictures, I got pictures of bumble bees sticking their long TONGUES out...and I found THORNS and THISTLE... lol... this main picture showed me another thing to go with teasel... TWIRL! I finally had to pull myself back into the house by my ear (how do I do that, anyway?!) or I'd still be out there taking pictures of TREES and the TABLE ROCKS (huge, beautiful plateau formation visible from our home)...and groupings of TWO and THREE or even TEN! Oh brother... I ended up processing five pictures in all and I hope you enjoy my Bokeh Thursday submissions! By the way, our group would LOVE to have new members--if this group sounds like fun, please come and join us!! :)

LOL! I think you nailed the required theme in spades! All the "T"s are wonderful! The main posted shot is great with a lot of beautiful twirlys! I also LOVE the bumblebee tongue shot! That is something you do not see every day (or in my case, ever). (I did get a woodpecker tongue shot yesterday - I may post it on Tongue Tuesday though)

The Tarweed blossom and flower are also quite pretty! Happy T Thursday!

This is so great!!! What a wonderful wonderful photograph. To focus on just that twirl and have the rest out of focus is really beautiful, especially with the lovely light. This is one excellent shot, Janet.
