Funtry Friday Feathers, Flowers, and Fiery Skies
The Blogging Business Artisans Challenge for May is flowers.
Create something with flowers and let your imagination bloom!
I am hoping to create some paintings soon because I have been able to get some lovely photographs of some of my favorite flowers.
Like this iris - the originals were planted by my dad about 55 years ago. He took them with us whenever we moved and I have kept on doing that, too.
I love photographing those iris, but then I got sidetracked with some other photography fun. I found out why the killdeer look so plain until they start thrashing around like crazy. Here is one side of a tail feather - with lots of bright colors.
However... the other side looks quite different. Voila - they hide their colors until they want to be seen.
Easily distracted person that I am, I paused between feather photos when I saw this lovely little - and I do mean little! - flower.
So perfect and so pretty! I wonder how many people really see a flower this small...
...and how many people are fascinated by feathers.
When you look at the guinea fowl, you don't always see their spots. Their feathers really do show their true colors, though.
And speaking of true colors, the sun shining on these delicate flower petals will made a very fun painting. I see lots of different colors in here - not just white.
But for truly amazing colors, just turn your eyes on to one of our fiery sunsets.
Looks like the Evening Primroses are really loving it.
Hope you enjoyed your Funtry Friday bouquet!
