Feathers of Blue

I know I’ve shown the Indigo Bunting just recently, but it is a fave and fits this category. Another favourite:

The Belted Kingfisher

For Our Eyes Open, Bird Weekly challenge: Feathers of blue

Threes in Threes (or so)

Amateur, I am, when it comes to photography. I’m excited to learn the ins and outs. This week, Nancy Merrill instructs on the rule of thirds. The featured image represents thistles leaning into the third.

This daffodils are leaning outside the boundaries, but there is something interesting about this shot to me.

Thanks Nancy Merrill for your A Photo a Week Challenge: Threes and Threes

Summer Delights

The heat of summer, typically fuels our wandering impulses. A spontaneous drive to the beach, or a weekend up north. Now that coronavirus has reined us in, we search seasonal delight closer to home: roses in the garden, the emerald green of farm fields, and the leisurely hunt of a furry fisherman.

Duck, Duck, Goose

I think this merganser is looking for a goose.
This Hooded Merganser is too cool for school.
This Goldeneye is feeling out of place.

Thanks to Our Eyes Open for hosting the Bird Weekly challenge and indulging my obsession. This week’s prompt is ducks and geese. The featured mallard found himself ditched.

Odes To Water

My soul begs the reassurance of flow
an enchanted place along the river
a moment of solace where I can breathe

My heart glows at the sound of summer
children’s voices raised above the splash
of clear blue – refreshing memories.
