Weekly Photo Challenge : Fray

Share a photo of what “fray” means to you — it could be a tear in a favorite pair of jeans, a street rumble just about to begin, or a friend diving into an oncoming wave at the beach.

That is the challenge from WP this week.

Quite a difficult one. Finally I’ve found some photos that I think will say “fray”.

I don’t know what sort of insect this is, it is the shape of a dragonfly but I have never seen one this colour. I think, maybe, it is at the end of its life cycle its wings look very frayed.

Look up at the fronds of palm trees they are always frayed and straggly looking, especially after a storm when the wind has whipped through them.

Many tropical plants have frayed looking leaves.

Finally I have chosen this strange-looking water plant with a frayed, fluffy looking flower.
