Night Bird: Celebrating my 3400th Posting With A Flower of The Day



I saw this bird in the light from the wall lamp outside the guest room as I opened the front gate at 9:30 PM to let guests out after a film night at my house tonight.  I remarked on the interesting lighting and my friend Glenda remarked it was more interesting because of the street light shining on it as well.  I wedged the gate open with an old axe head of my grandfather’s, went in to get my camera, got distracted and promptly forgot about it. It was after 1 a.m. when I decided to post a photo of a flower for my 3400th posting, remembered seeing a flower I wanted to photograph, remembered I was with Glenda when I saw it and started combing my memory. I then remembered it was a bird of paradise and went out to find the gate still wedged wide open.  Not a good idea in Mexico–especially with an axe head invitingly wedging it open!!!  Sheesh.

Here it is, above and below, not as interesting as earlier, but. . . .If my math is right, it is my 114th daily posting for Cee’s flower prompt, which I started posting on June 30, 2015.
