During this year I am taking up a challenge to post a photo a day on this blog. I am a beginner photographer hoping to learn much about my camera and how to take photos.

This is no joke! This is a protest photo. I have two friends, Maggie and Jill who post their daily photo on their Facebook page. That's great, but they have so many wonderful bugs and beetles in their areas. Both are in KwaZulu Natal and the variety of colourful "wildlife" they photograph every day leaves me envious.
Today I decided I was going to find a bug to photograph and if it were colourful all the better. I sat under a bush, I scouted the flower beds, peered into rose bushes.... Nothing! Where are the bugs in this place? Is it just the drought? In desperation I posted this photo I took at school today. I spied a container of colourful paper clips in the bursar's office and tipped them onto a sunny windowsill to get this shot. Fun but hardly competes with the real colourful bugs my friends shoot. Bring on the rain....
