 2 _DSC0007
A little study on a lone rose that`s blooming in the yard. I have a difficult time shooting the color red so bear with me.
On Planet Earth a peaceful cockfight with a colorful Bird Of Paradise. This one has been blooming for over a week.
It is better kept than most that are blooming here because of it`s protected location.
Through the header you can access a series of bird shots that will show you how we can all get along. A little red headed finch is living with a few much larger birds. It was basically the boss, & was Coconut`s protege.
Have a nice day tomorrow, & deal with the one after when you need to.

Rose. Wow.

Coconut rose. More Wow.

Morning Head, Andi.

(LOL Andi.)

I love the texture on the rose! Your photos always seem to jump off the screen, Head.

Off to the birds ......

Knucklehead said...

Thanks Andif,
I bow to your wow.
Wow bow, now.

Knucklehead said...

Good morning.
"Your photos seem to jump off the screen"
And the cow ran away with the moon.

The rose is lovely, but what I really love are the Finch'n'Friend photos.

Knucklehead said...

Nancy P,
The little finch would sleep in the hollow of my eye when I napped. She would sleep in my beard or anywhere close, while Coconut would perch on my clasped hands over my waist. Billy, & Kiwi
(not pictured) would join the sleep time crowd. At those times, I felt really special.

Hi knucklehead. That's a lovely rose. Wow.

Wait, Hasn't someone said that?


Knucklehead said...

You might check your mail once in a while. It`s nice to see you. I haven`t seen you since last year.
Have a nice time & make yourself comfy, if you wish.

(drifing) What? Email?

I've been TERRIBLE about commenting anywhere. Horrible. I visit, but haven't posted anywhere, except a couple of morning visits, in months.

But, I'm CHANGING -- it's my New Year's resolution to visit my blog-friends once a day. I promise.

Email? Did I miss an email from you?

Knucklehead said...

When did you last check?
Maybe I`m using the wrong address. I`ll go check.

katiebird said...

I'm embarrassed to say that my email is almost always open:

Knucklehead said...

Well excuse me.
I used an old address.
At least I used the one that came up for you. At the same time people do have strange instructions in their addresses sometimes like "removebird".
That`s over my head.
I`ve even tried to send mail before spelling out 'dot' in .com.
I have it now. Hopefully I sent something successfully to the correct address in the last few minutes.

katiebird said...

I'm just about to go to bed, but if you could tell me where that email came up then I'll update it.

I don't worry about the anti-spam stuff anymore. Gmail seems to catch it.

No excuses necessary. I didn't know that old address was still around. :)

Knucklehead said...

When I start typing in an address, a bunch come up, then are whittled down as I give up more info. I should look & see if I have more addresses for you but I`ll delete that one at least, correct?
You don`t have to bother replying, I`ll just not use that one anymore.
Good Night
