…stole the remnants of my

morning coffee and snack.








This pair of Yellow Hornbills were having

a great conversation

After a brief chat, where I am sure

they were telling jokes,

their wings would spread further than is this image

and their heads would furiously bob

up and down for a few seconds.

Then the cycle was repeated again and again.





Elephant’s ear.

above the the thirds intersection.


Heads on thirds intersection.

Probably the pic of my ‘thirds’ photos.


A Photo a Week Challenge:  Threes-‘n’-Threes





It could be said that

…I cheated a bit with this image.

With maximum shadow applied, an

almost a fifty-fifty light and dark is created,

This edit makes yesterday’s scene appear

more like a Hollywood battlefield scene

than it did in reality.
