Balance Me This

What a wonderful bird? It is balancing every so precariously on its perch while seeming to eat something. They are elegant birds.

According to National Geographic, “All parrots have curved beaks and all are zygodactyls, meaning they have four toes on each foot, two pointing forward and two projecting backward. Most parrots eat fruit, flowers, buds, nuts, seeds, and some small creatures such as insects. Parrots are found in warm climates all over most of the world.”

Totem Poles

While visiting Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, I took this photos of the totem poles.

According to the park’s website: “Totem poles are unique to the north west coast of BC and lower Alaska. They were carved from western red cedar and each carving tells of a real or mythical event. They were not idols nor were the worshipped. Each carving on each pole has a meaning.”

Here is a beautiful red rose from me to you! I have left the essential rouge colour as it is and took out the green background to make it black and white. I love what you can do with computer design nowadays.

It was taken at the Rose Garden in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Perfection

This rose is absolutely perfect existing in this world as a beautiful flower. It is not alone as there are other roses growing with it on a bush. It has soft droplets of water on it because of the dew in the air.

This is a Japanese Garden found near the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There is balance here.

According to the Internet, “Kanso is the Japanese equivalent of feng shui which is all about harmonising yourself with your surrounding environment. It’s every hoarder’s nightmare as it means to get rid of clutter and eliminate the non-essential. … The Japanese aesthetic is part of a seven-part principle to achieve total zen.”

Here is a wonderful parrot who has just cracked open a nut. According to the Internet, “Hailing from South America, the beautiful blue-and-gold Macaw presents a bold mix of bright blue and yellow feathers…Moreover, it’s green forehead offers beautiful contrast to its blue and yellow body.” They are intelligent.

Back And Forth

These flowers are both looking forwards and backwards at the same time. I find it unusual that they are not all facing the same direction as they would towards the sunshine but they were indoors so I guess that is why they are growing towards different light sources.

I do not know what type of flowers they are but they are pretty. Perhaps, someone could enlighten me?

Canada Place

I was across the water at Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada when I captured this image of Canada Place. I love the sail elements and I also like the peach hue of the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “Canada Place is a building situated on the Burrard Inlet waterfront of Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the home of the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel, and Vancouver’s World Trade Centre.”
