Default July Challenge - Vivid Color

Not a lot of folks playing these days. Thanks for another win. July is Vivid Color. A picture that benefits from deep color saturation.

It's much too quiet here. I'm not exactly sure what you would say this is but it definitely has vivid colors.

way to quiet. Nice posts. Shot our hummingbird the other day and with some saturation thought it worked for the challenge.

This is a fun topic! I'm starting to take some pictures again, and discovered I've gotten way out of practice. Don't know if this photo falls into "vivid color" or not, but it's close enough for this month. I may change this later, if another thought I have works out, but I may not be able to pull it off.

In any case, this is my entry (for now), taken tonight with the K-S1 and DA 40.
