May Photo Scavenger Hunt

The end of May crept up on me rather rapidly and it was a mad dash to take the last few photos before yesterday's deadline, but here are my offerings for this month's challenge.

Butterflies were also a part of my facebook photo challenge and I did have a few to choose from (not all living ones) but a trip yesterday to Tropical Wings and was able to catch this beauty!

At the beginning of May we visited Audley House and as part of their Bank Holiday celebrations they were holding a Victorian Event and I was hoping that their pennyfarthing would be out and about - but sadly this was not to be, so can you imagine my surprise when on my way to town the other morning I saw this chappie riding his bike through the streets of our village. A quick u-turn and some hap-hazard parking and I managed to catch this...
A Bicycle
The toilet door at a tiny church in Little Baddow where we have our summer toddler meetings - the gardens are beautiful and the children have a lovely time.
A Red Door
The cartoon character one had me stumped until our visit to Tropical Wings yesterday - Tompom is a huge fan of Garfield over on Cartoonito so this had to go into the album.

Like most of you I had trouble getting a photo of an emergency vehicle that wasn't moving rapidly through the streets so resorted to one of Tompom's wooden Police cars.

I picked up this vintage camera at an event my local charity shop was holding.
Think Vintage!
As some of you know we have had a big problem with bees in our house/garden and I grabbed the camera quickly when I saw Paul looking through the sight of his air rifle as he tried to scare off the bees from the chimney!!!
Something Blue
Not technically a street lamp but the lamp in our neighbour's garden..
A Street Light
The texture of the shell of the giant tortoise at Tropical Wings.
Texture
We had to look after next doors fish whilst they were away at the beginning of the month and I managed to catch these two - I am a Pisces after all.
A sign of the Zodiac
This is the old Manor House at the end of our road - Sandon Brook Manor. We live in one of the original chauffeur/butler cottages at the other end of the lane.
It has been a naughty boys school in its past and is now home to several luxury apartments.
An Interesting Local Building
This picture of Tompom smelling a white rose is my black and white portrait.

Very original, especially the texture one. I think Pisces was a poular choice for the Zodiac sign!
