Party Wings of Red & Yellow


::

dressed in black
and party wings of red and yellow
the elevated dance floor
was abuzz with dancers
flapping to and fro

the music
was loud and boisterous
but the partiers
were having the time of their lives

  8. What a cool photo! It looks so surreal. Enjoyed the video very much. They really can get annoying with their calls when there is a big flock present.

  12. What a splendid bird - I dont think it would take very long for that call to be lodged in my memory!

    I deleted my original comment because I missed the upper picture - I though it was your header! Thats a great picture! I really hoped that people would post a wide range of styles of pictures to WBW and this is one of the best "abstracts" I've seen!

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne
