This week’s Photo Challenge at The Daily Post, set for us by Michelle, points to the fact that it is easy being green, despite what some frogs may tell you.

Not just any old green, but light green. That’s what Cee is asking for in her Fun Foto Challenge this week, so here goes!
One of the many hotels on Mackinac Island, this one distinctive by reason of its color, light green, which really made a splash against the blue sky.
A light green classic car at Mount Prospect’s Bluesmobile Cruise Night.
Just a small part of my extensive frog collection. There must be a light green one in there somewhere!
A beautiful view from Foothills Parkway in Tennessee.
The town clock in Mitchell, South Dakota.

As Kermit the frog will tell you, “It’s not easy being green.” Even the foliage ceases to be green in October so I thought I’d look elsewhere for examples of green.
At a display of vintage cars in Long Grove, Illinois.
One of Kermit’s relations perhaps. It was easy to spot this frog as the green stood out against the color of the path.
From a real frog to a sculpture in the Nicholas Conservatory, Rockford, Illinois.
A piece of Chihuly glass artwork on display at the visitors center in Columbus, Indiana.
A green parrot. I must have been feeling extremely brave that day, either that, or I had a very long lens.
I’ve seen plenty of yellow swallowtail butterflies but this one, at the Butterfly Exhibit at the Chicago Botanic Garden, had a distinctly green tinge to it.
