I am going to use the meaning of the color jet: jet black. The color is from jet, lignite used in jewelry. Lignite is a precurser to coal. I have a necklace of jet beads from my great aunt.
This coot is jet black in the sun and against the water. Coots look self-contained to me, shyer than the ducks. They look down in the water and make noises to them selves, not like the insistent mallards. They move a little bit robotically. The neurological wiring seems more primitive than the ducks.
I think the minimal color palette shows off the detail of the duck’s feathers and of the grasses. She was also very calm. I walked to the edge of Kai Tai Lagoon and didn’t see her next to me until I was standing there. She held very still in the sun.
Attach your photograph or photographs with detail that you enjoy or fascinates you. I will list them next week. And thanks for the get will wishes re influenza!
Refugees welcome - Flüchtlinge willkommen I am teaching German to refugees. Ich unterrichte geflüchtete Menschen in der deutschen Sprache. I am writing this blog in English and German because my friends speak English and German. Ich schreibe auf Deutsch und Englisch, weil meine Freunde Deutsch und Englisch sprechen.
