When I checked the theme list for the upcoming themes a couple of weeks, I thought to myself, who the heck suggested fury! I had no idea what I was going to post. I think I even made a comment on a couple of blogs about how this week’s theme was going to be very challenging. Yesterday out of the blue before I saw any PhotoHunt posts for this week, it dawned on me that the theme was not fury but instead furry! Now that one is easy. I decided to go with photos a little bit *outside the box*.
I took the first two with an old point and shoot camera in the spring of 2004 at the Hamakua Marsh in Kailua. Photos are a blurry…
I took the next photo just before sunset in poor lighting, leaning over a guardrail before I knew the theme for this week was furry. If I had, I would have gone back and taken a few photos in better light. I should know the name of this flower, but I don’t.
I took the last photo at Kualoa Ranch. I am putting this photo on the second page so that my friend Sandra will have ample warning to not look so I won’t freak her out.
I wasn’t sure if an ostrich would fit in the furry category. I found this link talking about the furry feathers:
Furry Feathers : The feathers of adult males are mostly black, with some white on the wings and tail. Females and young males are grayish-brown, with a bit of white. The small vestigial wings are used by males in mating displays. They can also provide shade for chicks. The feathers are soft and serve as insulation, and are quite different from the stiff airfoil feathers of flying birds.
Even without google, the feathers look furry to me.
