It`s ladies night again, so today this post will be to celebrate one of Teri`s little friends.
This is what Teri is about.
This is Iris, in an image I don`t think anybody has seen previously.
This is one I took when she lived in the house with the rest of the flock. She was a freeflyer so we had to be careful to not let her escape until she was ready for the big outdoors.
At this time, Iris had just begun to fly & it was imperative that she have the best of nutrients for her future wellbeing. That`s why I lived for a few weeks in a funeral parlor.
Actually, the new potted flowering plants that Teri brought in on a daily basis from the local plant shop down the road, made it seem like a funeral parlor. Nothing but the best for this little angel.
As you can see from linking to the header image, Iris was a tiny little thing but with the heart a million times bigger.
You can see her doing practice flights off of my hand. She has the daintyest landing gear I`ve ever seen, except maybe on a little shrimp I once had. (With ketchup)
There`s a little cold weather finch beyond the main post, & a series of ,"Hey, check these out honey" shots, from my tanks.
Stay safe & warm, please.
From the reports I hear, many of you have severe weather conditions to contend with. Don`t take chances that may put you or yours in harms way.
