Powder Puff Bird?



Bob hollered in the door last week, Bring the camera...
He pointed to the above powder puff and said Look.
 "A Powder Puff with a Chicken Tail"


I could not stop with one shot
But then you KNEW that!


What is a frog's favorite flower?

This is magnificent flower.
Bob was right. It does look like that. I have not seen a flower like that.

Thanks for sharing.

You know I love them, I have a whole folder of ones that I have purloined from you, and hope to one day buy a collage frame and hang them. To me, the first one looks like a flamingo. The brown sticking out is the head and neck, the pink are his tail feathers, which he is shaking!!

Mersad said...

I like the unusual shape of the flower, but the color is amazing too.

Ann said...

This is just so pretty. Absolutely amazing looking. I look forward to the next 13 posts on it. I like the edges of that second shot.

Deb said...

love those powder puffs...we have pink one..I used to pretend they were real powder puffs when I was a girl...then put them in my hair and pretend I was in Hawaii...

Miss Debbie said...

Wow! Pretty and unusual...Bob knows what you like! :-)

Eva Ason said...

There are those nice flowers again, gorgeous colour. And cool that Bob noticed and asked you to bring your snap machine hehe! Have a fabulous Tuesday

Linda@arichtapestry said...

That was thoughtful of Bob to call you to bring your camera and take a photo of that flower. I can see why you're both so enthusiastic because it's a lovely plant and a great colour. I've been photographing red camellias and the colour uplifts the spirit.

DeniseinVA said...

It is gorgeous and love the feel of that dancing sunlight you have captured. Yay for Bob too.

Maggie M said...

Looking like it has a chicken tail or not...what a gorgeous flower. The pictures are amazing as always. Hugs
