Masked

Debbie’s quotation inspired image

“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”

Oscar Wilde

If anyone has encountered a Masked Lapwing, they will give you the truth. Come near my nest and look out. Trouble is Masked Lapwings, or Plovers as they are generally known, lay their eggs anywhere they want. I have seen nests in the middle of football fields or on the grass verge on the side of a road.

They will defend their right to be casual egg layers quite violently. They have spurs on their wings which can be quite nasty if attacked.

Connected

Debbie’s quotation-inspired image photo challenge

“In nature we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it and over it.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We may be the same
but we are different
from the same connection
we exist

We are connected
here
there
everywhere
Some connections prickly
some connections smooth
but there is always
love
