My Assistant


It's a long story. I brought the violet outside for a quick series of natural daylight photographs. All to do with trying to find out why the camera sees the bloom as blue while I see it closer to magenta. Anyway - for the few minutes I was taking photos the Blackcap chickadees kept on flitting in - with no care at all for the stranger at the feeder. As for the color problem, I still don't have a clear answer. However it was an interesting experience. ATB!

I just look and violets and they die.

You are a very talented violet tender.

Great catch of the chickadee and the flower. I love chickadees but they don't live around here. we have to go up into the mountains.

Rusty, perhaps the chickadee was just admiring the African violet's colorful bloom? I enjoyed the recent posts on Napoleon too, who is quite a good photo subject...as long as he is fed.
