The

African Lilac Breasted Roller

is my pastel subject this week.

When I first sighted the Roller it was just another bird

 against a hot sunny South African sky.

High up in a tree my red and green colour vision loss

did not allow my eyes to see the colours.

It was not until I arrived home and saw the photos

on my computer that I appreciated its colours.

Although at nearly ground level and only 30-40 metres away,

the colours of this Roller were much easier to see

when sighted in Botswana’s Okavango Delta region

the following year.

Odd Ball

Week 30, 2016

Even with shaking hands, a missing tab or two to hold

everything in place, I thought I had probably done

a fair job of framing a photo.

Until…

I turned it over and…

had a really good look…and found the missing tab. 😦

Professionals charge $AUD85/$USD65

to frame this (an A3 size photo)

I suppose I can break one, but only one.
