Pelican’s Morning

Flapping and fluttering of feathery wings.
Winging their way, on fluffy fantastic down,
Down on the lake they begin to preen,
Preen in the reflected face of the shimmering water
Water is their life, their food, their all,
All of them, families young and old preening and feeding together,
Together they fish, float, flap, flurry and flounder on the rocks they call home.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro

With the ubiquitous phone cameras accumulating an over-abundance of photos, joining in with the Phoneography challenge, over at lensandpensbysally , is almost a given.

Here is my macro submission! Cropped but no other filter applied.

Hello there!

Macro photography –

revealing in its detail,

stunningly artistic in its form

and surprising in its (original) format

Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge

Michelle’s weekly pet challenge week 10 is open.  If you’d like to take part, here is how:
Just simply do a post of your pets, or pets of your friends or family.  You can also post pictures and stories of animals that come and eat food you leave out for them. Eg, you may have a bird feeder in your garden. Pictures taken in the wild are also very welcome. Link back here and head your post as “Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge.”  Display the logo on your post or on your sidebar.
Most importantly, have fun!

Not my pet this week!! But something from my travels in Switzerland.
