Haiku: Black, White, and Color

Black and white alone
is without red blue and yellow,
solely shades of grey

Are your days cloudy?
Let the sun through with bright hues,
Colors burst with joy

Paint a cheerful life,
mix the red blue and yellow,
live a blended life

Transformation

Daily Prompt: Green

Green, Uncategorized

I finally made it to the top of the summit.  It took me a few minutes to catch my breath.  Eagles soared beneath the Cerulean Blue sky.  The yellow rays from the afternoon sun made the meadows below turn into an emerald green grassy field.  That luscious green backdrop made a setting for an array of reddish flowers sprinkled throughout the country side.  Looking to the other side of the summit the blue skies and yellow-orange sun filtered through the large body of transparent green water.  The waters’ ripples looked like sparkling crystals scattered throughout the surface of the mint green water.

After a mix of complementary colors of blue and yellow, green emerges for today’s daily prompt.

Flower and the Bird

Uncategorized

Hibiscus and Bird-2This photo is created from two of my pictures. I felt the photos by their selves did not jump out. They were the typical bird and flower pictures. I wanted a picture that shows a story. This photo of a big hibiscus flower and a little yellow bird showed me a beautiful red bird- house with a yellow perch. The tiny warbler with its open mouth appears to call into the flower.

Golden Crown Kinglet showing his crown copy

This tiny bird known as the Golden-crown Kinglet must have read my mind.  I was thinking I’d like to get a good shot of its crown.  No sooner said, he leans down to show me his famous icon, the the golden crown.

American Goldfinch (Eastern Goldfinch)

If the Garden of Eden still existed, the American Goldfinch would be the species you’d find in God’s paradise.  When I took this picture, it was a cloudy, grey day.  This adult male Goldfinch brightened my outlook on the day with its dazzling yellow body.  It seemed to spread happiness and joy as it flittered from plant to plant.  I noticed the Goldfinches favor the yellow and orange flowered plants for their pick of seeds.  It was of interest to watch these birds eat.  With their conical beak, it makes it easy for them to remove the seeds from the seed heads of a sunflower, purple coneflower or thistle plant.

House fly on a blackeye susan

House fly on a blackeye susan

Although a house fly is annoying and carries diseases, it looks so innocent as it carries the pollen from this Blackeye Susan. When a fly lands on our food, we just wave our hand over the food the fly is on and it flies away. Then we continue to eat.. I captured this picture as I practiced my macro photography
