Now if this photo doesn't catch your attention for color,
I'm not sure what will! I wanted to do a post on color
inspirations from birds. For two weeks prior to Easter
every year, the Triple D Farm and Hatchery in Alaska
sells a few hundred of these colorful chicks. The owner
says a non-toxic dye is injected into the eggs of a variety
of chicken breeds before they are hatched. This causes
their down fur to be colored. As they grow, the color
birds was Annechovie's great post on color she
titled "Color Chutzpah." If you haven't seen this
post, you must hop over to check it out. Among
her selection of photos was the above bird. I was
just fascinated with the colors on this bird. The bird
is called a Lilac breasted roller from South Africa.
Speaking of aquamarine, how are these lamps
for inspiration compared to this beautiful bird?
This bird's color palette reminded me of Nicky Hilton's
Quite an unusual color combination
of hot rods and flames!
And of course, the arrogant but breathtaking peacock
in all it's splendour. It definitely has a reason to be
arrogant as does the queen below whose dress was
inspired by the bird above.
