Thanks for all your great feedback yesterday on the choices for our BLUE entry In Capture the Colour 2013. It looks like we have a clear winner … The Apothecary’s Bottle. (If you weren’t around yesterday and are totally confused, just check it out here.) So, today we present our entries for the GREEN category. Please let us know in the Comments which photo you think we should submit.
Terri and James
P.S. Tomorrow we’ll show you our RED choices.
1. A Green Bug Zapper
Green anoles are a common sight in the Southeast US, but their wary nature, and rocket-like escape maneuvers make them difficult to photograph close-up. What’s not obvious from the photo, is that he’s perched on an 18th Century tombstone in one of Charleston, South Carolina’s many wonderful old graveyards.

2. Green Bench on the Green Line
We could hardly believe our eyes that just 20 feet beyond this gentleman sitting on the bench lies the “Green Line” – the UN occupied buffer zone that divides the Greek and Turkish areas of Nicosia, Cyprus. We were intrigued by this conflicting image. This beautiful walled city is the only divided capital in the world! The razor-wire-secured area, smack-dab in the middle of town, was created when an army general drew a line across the map in green crayon.

3. Beauty Rising
Master carver Keith Jennings created this wonderful, winsome beauty on a live oak tree in the village on St. Simons Island, Georgia. And as is often the case with these grand old southern trees, a green palm has found refuge in the same welcoming cleft. There are about 15-20 sculptures scattered around the island, and they’re truly hidden gems. All are exceptionally well done, but this carving is our favorite.
