Solstice photos

A Royal Palm in Hawaii

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Again the Solstice.’ See more responses here. I didn’t have any good ideas for illustrating the solstice so, instead, plumped for photos taken on the solstice.

The top photo, I’ve run before in 2019, but who doesn’t love a grumpy cat? The second photo, from 2021, is of a royal palm amongst other tropical foliage. These palms can grow to 70 feet tall and look very stately when planted in a row. This one was quite a bit smaller.

The bottom two photos show a Fiery Skipper butterfly on a Mesembryathemum flower in 2020, and a Pacific Day Octopus hunting in the company of a goatfish back in 2018.

      They’re not the biggest octopuses around. This one was medium sized, I’d say, but I’ve seen some very little ones.

      Cat’s have that way about them. I once saw a cat that was sleeping on a TV, roll over, fall off, past the front of the TV, bounce off the edge of the table the TV was on, and land in his feet on the floor. He cast a quick look around, satisfied himself that no one had noticed, and then strode off looking very dignified. It might be one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, but I kept a straight face for his benefit!
