As I mentioned in last months This is August, I lamented the fact that the photo of the male Satin Bowerbird didn’t really do it justice. Luckily he came back when the sun was out and he shone in all his glory. Enjoy.
The purple eye is also a treat.
What once was a blue colour turns black at times
This is why he is called a Satin Bowerbird
The blue cascades down his back
The female has her own special look
The green may not shimmer in the light but the markings are lovely
Here is one of the bowers on my place. This is where some fancy dancing takes place with so many bits of blue scattered about for decoration.

My sixth photo for Becky’s square photo challenge: In the Pink
We were tickled pink to be first in the yacht race until the bigger yachts opened their spinnakers
If you want to join in here are a few ideas from Becky.
The theme for squares this month is ‘In the Pink‘ and the one rule as always is that your main photograph must be square. After that the world is your oyster, or should I say flamingo?! To help you get started here are some ideas you might want to consider;
- ‘In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
- ‘Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
- Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
- There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?
Squares is a daily challenge, so your photographs can be from the archives or brand new. Don’t forget though to keep your photo square, and to pingback with #InthePink.
