For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: haze.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: jet.
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.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: exercise.
I have not been exercising this week, since Monday. I have barely left the house! but influenza is like that and it’s a time to rest.
I photographed this pair of American wigeons napping last weekend, at Kai Tai Lagoon in the sun. Napping in the water, how clever, I can’t do that. I do think I woke them, but at least one returned to sleep. Hopefully I’ve learned my lesson in the past too. I have to rest when I am sick and return to exercise afterwards!
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: bail.
The little red pram is older than I am and leaks. Last summer we got it out and my daughter sailed and bailed with ease. She is on the racing team at Western Washington in Bellingham, racing FJs.
For Mundane Monday #202 my prompt is unexpected.
In this photograph I zoomed in to capture the cormorant. I didn’t notice or expect the row of boats at all. I like the horizon effect too, as if the boats are on the edge of something, the edge of the world.
What have you captured unexpectedly? Something in a photograph that you were not aware of? Send your link and I will list them next week.
The prompt for last Monday was contrast.
Bushboy’s world illustrates beautiful Contrasts.
Have an amazing week.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt spray.
This is the eagle that was feasting on a dead octopus last week. We had to walk by to get home. We tried not to spook her, but she flew out to land on a rock just out from shore. Her wings look like the waves and the waves like her wings.
