Photo Challenge March 2017 - Something beginning with "M"

February’s “Photo Challenge” thread seemed quite popular, so let’s try another.

The theme for the month is Something beginning with “M”. So you’re free to post anything you like, as long as the subject begins with the letter M in English. For places, monuments, buildings, etc. the name in the local language is fine, English or not. But no posting a house and saying it’s a “maison”, or a pig and saying it’s a “muc”.

The only rules for posting pictures are:

  • They must be on the specified theme
  • They must be your own pictures.

There are no prizes; this is just for fun. If you don’t take photos yourself, or don’t have anything suitable to post, then please join in by “voting” for your favourite picture(s) using the “like” button.

To kick off the thread, here’s a meerkat at Edinburgh Zoo.

A nice photo but I would have cropped it a bit @TechnoBear

I liked the contrast of the furry meerkat with the rocky background, @Rubble. Perhaps you’ll like this one better.

Two of my favorite shots, mosaic… Antique mosaic to be exact:

Gotta admit, I don’t care much about eastern antiques, but I can’t help but admire the shots lol

M is for six spot moth.

Had to go back a few years for this one as I could not find anything starting with M except movement but that might not be accepted.

Where ever you see these flowers in the summer it has the six spot moths on.

Too many memories. RIP, GM.
Last Christmas…

A walk in the Mountains. Could have used some bracketing but did what I could in Photoshop. Can see forever up there!
