Artist Inspired: October 2016: Pink

The theme this month of Artist Inspired is PINK.  Pink is not my favorite color, however, the Roseate Spoonbill is definitely one of my favorite birds and they happen to be a gorgeous color of pink.  Since I am still not walking out and about, I have gone to some old images I have of this bird.  I often see the Roseate Spoonbill when I am walking through the wetlands.  It is a treat when you see a lot of them but one at a time is a special thrill as well.  The Roseate Spoonbill is a wading bird.  Watching them feed is always interesting as they swing their bill, which is shaped like a spoon, from side to side.  They feed on frogs, small insects, crustaceans, and small fish.  They build their nests in trees typically laying 3 – 5 eggs.   I hope you love this bird as much as I do.

October is breast cancer awareness month.  I have learned a lot about breast cancer recently.  One of our bloggers has shared very openly about the process she is going through as she deals with breast cancer.  I also have a cousin who recently underwent a mastectomy, and breast reconstruction.  Stats say that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Remember to be aware of early warning signs, check your breasts for lumps, do your annual mammogram.  It is better to be safe than sorry.  To learn more about breast cancer awareness and what you should do to be informed and how you can make a difference click here.  

 

Just a reminder that this is a circle blog and I would encourage you to click to continue on reading what they other photographers in this group have for you.  Please stop by Carrine’s photography page Jupiter Hue Photography and read her blog.  Don’t forget to leave a little love on their pages.
