Nice and scary W's | #AlphabetHunt for the letter W

in Feel Goodlast month (edited)

During my hunt for the letter W I have caught landscapes, waterfalls and also some nice insects ... if spiders scare you please don't scroll to the end.


There are not many letters left in the #AlphabetHunt Challenge hosted by the lovely and great artist Barbara @barbara-orenya, who has already started the next round of the Challenge in the Feel Good Community, where you have to illustrate 6 words (or concepts) starting with the letter of the week.

Hive AlphabetHunt - Letter W

This week we are hunting the Letter "W". Please visit the latest blog post of Barbara | @barbara-orenya to find out more about the easy to follow rules this fun contest: AlphabetHunt letter W- and the winners of the lucky draw.


So let's begin with the probably most obvious W word ...

Window

There will be many Windows to see this week, but I want to show you another kind of window. The sunset on the Dobratsch mountain last month was mostly covered by dark rain clouds, but for a few minutes the clouds opened a little Window to show me an orange lit cloud behind.

Wasp

During a Walk at the reservoir in August I encountered quite a few Wasps which had breakfast on flowers together with other insects in peace.

Waterfall

This little Waterfall reminds me on a white wedding dress. I have taken the photo during a hike through a gorge and forest called "Abenteuer Wasser Weg / Adventure Water Way" near home.

The second Waterfall I have photographed a couple of days ago at one of my favorite places, the Šunik Water Grove / Šunikov vodni gaj in Slovenia. I have taken many photos of this Waterfall in the past years and every single one looks different, but all look good 😁

Wet

Some insects look great when they are still full of dew drops in the morning. This wet fly was still sleeping on a leaf or it was still too cold for it to move, so I could easily take a few photos 😊

Winding

On my way back down to the valley from the Nassfeld pass on my last photo trip, I encountered this nice looking winding road below and the cascading stream behind. Of course I had to take a quick shot and then drive down there :)

Web

Spider Webs are fascinating things and you won't believe how fast spiders web their web using the silk they produce.

B O N U S
Wasp Spider

I have shown you Wasps and Spiders above, so I thought I could add some Wasp Spiders (Argiope bruennichi) as a little bonus.

Hive AlphabetHunt Wasp Spider

There have been three of these big spiders right beside the path I was walking and I saw them only by accident, because the web of the first one was shining bright in the morning sun.

Hive AlphabetHunt Wasp Spider

Each of the other two Wasp Spiders had caught a prey and already wrapped it in silk. The first prey seems to be a grasshopper ...

... but I have absolutely no idea what kind of insect the prey of the other Wasp Spider could be. Maybe it's also a grasshopper, but it looks very strange.

Well, I think with these words the easy hunting days are over, although Barbara | @barbara-orenya has loosened the rules for the remaining letters X, Y and Z:

>So we group these last three letters and you can come up with 6 words starting with X Y and/or Z, while trying to find words in each, as far as possible 😊 ...do not only propose Y, try to propose in X and Z too ...😉



I don't add information about the photos when I post for the #AlphabetHunt, because it's all about the words, but all photos were shot with the Canon EOS R and one of these lenses: Canon RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS II USM, Canon EF 16-35mm 1:4 L IS USM, Canon EF 50mm 1:1.8 L STM, SIGMA 105mm 1:2,8 DG MACRO HSM, SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM C.

I leave all EXIF and IPTC information stored in the pictures.

If you like my photos I would appreciate an upvote, nice comment or maybe you want to share my post on your blog 😊 ... and maybe you would like to follow me, so that you never miss a post from me.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog,
have a nice evening,

I am arachnophobic , so spider web is not my favourite, but it really looks great on your photos @johannpiber.

Cheers !BEER

Such large spiders scare me a bit too and I don't think I would touch these guys 😉

Another great one Hannes,

It seems that this competition is slowly drawing to a close and you have done so well in it. Looking forward the the next one so that you can display your wares again!

Well done and lovely photos as usual!

Yeah, next week the competition is over because we are going to hunt all three remaining letters X, Y and Z in one post to make it easier 😉
It will still be a challenge because these letters are quite hard anyway, but since I need only 2 words / photos for each letter I think I and we all can make it 😅

Thanks a lot that you like my photos, Zac 🙂

Not so difficult Hannes and I am sure that you will master it.
Might be a slight challenge for others, but the Austrian mountain goat always finds a way through the fences 🤣

I seriously mean it when I say something is good and yours are a step higher into the excellent category.

Cheers and thanks!

Of course, I and also the rest of the #AlphabetHunter's will make it through the fences. We will cross the finish line together 😉

Thanks a lot again Zac, I give my best 😊

Your hunt was more than successful ... I am delighted .... The waterfall is beautiful and what a blessing it is to have it nearby :-)
Wet is such a good macro photo ...
And the spider is the one you photographed and was very scary ... and it is ... I had the one with the yellow as a guest in the yard :-) but it wasn't so scary ;-)
I also tried to photograph the spider and the web, but unfortunately I don't have good equipment :-( and before this rain my yard was full of spiders, even bigger ones :-)
You did a good job @johannpiber
congratulations and I hope you will be successful in this #AlphabetHunt round as well.
I wish you a nice evening and a wonderful weekend ahead.

Hm, this is the third time that I try to reply to you, @suzana72 ;)
I have replied yesterday evening already and today too - there's no reply so see - this hardfork is weird...

So, @suzana72, you have even bigger spiders in your backyard? Cool - I seldom see big spiders and I was glad to see these three wasp spiders :)

Thank you very much for your kindness and the nice words you have found for my photos, @suzana72, I wish you also a wonderful weekend 🤗☀️

You're welcome @johannpiber 😊

I think these problems will last for another few days till everything will run smoothly again.

I think, so many of them wouldn't be that cool anymore, but great for Halloween 🎃😉

Lovely beer! Thank you very much.

Some great pictures, a few did not want to load, one of the ones not loading must have been the picture of the witch, they are after all scary W things in many ways, I did like the waterfall pictures especially the second one with the small thinner fall on the left of the picture. The Wasp Spider shots looked great. I was just joking about the witch.

Sorry for my late reply, but the Hive didn't work for me very well yesterday evening and today I have been searching for autumnal colors, but it has snowed and so I have got a wintry landscape with autumnal colors 😉

Thanks a lot for your comment, @bashadow 😀 I think the Witch is called HardFork 😂 lol

I have uploaded the missing images in a comment to my post.
The second waterfall always looks different. After rainfalls such small waterfalls appear to the sides of the gorge and I think these little falls look sometimes even better than the big falls. At least they make them look a lot better 🙂

Yes a few HF Glitches, voting and commenting have been tough and I guess some posting has been difficult since it seems there were not that many.

Snow, so far we have not gotten any maybe some in the mountains, but none down where I live, I am hoping it holds off as long as it did last year, but we may actually have some on the ground for Halloween this year. It is certainly getting cold fast.

The snow we have got last night will be gone soon, because they predict a sunny weekend and next week should be very nice too. It's too early for the winter anyway - the trees haven't even changed much colour yet.

I wish you a great weekend, @bashadow 😀


Cheers and !BEER
!invest_vote

A couple of days ago they were expect snow for us for the weekend, so I had to rush and get the tires changed over to the studded ones, It is so far a pretty nice day here, lots of blue but that also makes it a very cold day, mid afternoon and we still have a bit of frost in the shaded areas.

Like your area, those first couple of snows when we get them don't last long at all.

!ENGAGE 20

I have changed my tires already because my son has driven quite a lot of kilometres, so the summer tires almost had no profile anymore and looked like slick tires 😂

We haven't had frost here in the valley yet, but soon it will be frosty in the mornings, and together with fog there will be cool photo opportunities 😁

Wish you a great weekend 😀

Ah, very very good hunting trophies. I like all but I was taken in particular by the beauty of the Waterfalls. The first waterfall picture does really look like a bride. But my grandson loves the wasp spider photos and their captured preys. I had to promise him that we will look at the pictures again but first give me time to reply to you lol. The winding road did not show but I saw the upload in one of the comments you made and I was not disappointed with it.

Great illustration of Window. Not a man-made one but a natural one. Very creative of you. And the Wasp macro was so clear and crisp it is as if you can reach out and touch it. Awesome.

All in all this was an exceptionally good hunt for you. Congratulations. Now, we prepare for the X Y Z which, although combined, can still give us some really difficult challenges.

He really likes these scary spiders? Cool, your grandson is a very brave boy 😁

I'm glad that you have found the photos in my comment, because this hardfork has made some issues and I'm still having problems with voting and commenting.

Thank you so much for your kind words, @gems.and.cookies, now let's start to search for the Y, Y and the Z's because as you say, it is still a bit of a challenge 😉
Wish you a wonderful weekend my friend 🙂

One of my grandson's favorite cartoon character is Lucas, the tarantula. So I guess, all spiders are not to be afraid of.

Yes, I was wondering why I was having a hard time with loading hive.blog and taking even longer to post comments. But hopefully, it will all come to pass.

The X Y Z will be the last of the Mohicans, so to speak. Let's do our best with this final chapter of this great Challenge. Can't wait to see what you're going to catch.

Have a blessed weekend ahead, my friend @johannpiber and thanks for the goodies.

Yes, you have told me that a while ago, but I thought such big spiders would scare him, because they really don't look that nice 😉

There will be another challenge, but this one was big fun and it will not be easy to make a better challenge ;)
I am curious on all of the other posts, because there are such few words I can imagine, that many will have the same words 😉 ... we'll see.
