What is Artistic licence?… and how am I doing?

Now there’s a question no one wants to see.. hell, how do we politely tell this man his own artistic licence is up to pot…?? Please don’t do that !!!

I so wish I could paint, to take these photos and commit them to canvas, to frame and place on my wall… not all of them, (haven’t got a big enough wall) but some just appeal to my eye.. like this one… would this fall into the genre of an abstract ??


These birds twist and turn with their preening, and there is more than often an opportunity to capture a different aspect of their colours from the different angles they get into… like this one…


The differing feathers, from thin to broad, the golden feather tips that are below the wings.. the mauves or reds (hell what colour is that??) towards the tail. The delicate feathers around the neck, almost hair like… the broad perfect feathers of the wings, and then the head gear… a pin cushion of gold… what a bird God created here…


a few more photos of those I love….



Have a great day as I will be having… go well….
