Thinking Pink – Birds, Sky and Flowers

Pink Lotus in Auckland, New ZealandPink Lotus in Auckland, New Zealand

I’m not sure why I wanted to do a post using images with pinks but here they are, a flower, a bird and pink kissed clouds.

I photographed this Pink Lotus in Auckland, New Zealand before flying back to the United States, I loved the combination of the soft pinks, the greens and the bright lemony yellow center of the flowers. It was a breezy day so I felt lucky to catch the Lotus while it wasn’t moving.

And here is a pink colored wading bird, a Roseate Spoonbill in flight over a lagoon at Fort De Soto County Park in Florida, one of my favorite locations.

And last;  a photo I took at Fort De Soto County Park not long after the sun had risen above the horizon as storm clouds moved in. The only thing I photographed that morning was the clouds because I had to dash back to my vehicle before the rain started pouring down.

Just thinking pink.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.

  13. Ah, lovely. Very springy! That lotus shot is NUTS. I hear you re: praying for a flower to stop blowing in the breeze. And who doesn’t love spoonbills and clouds? =) Thanks for a lovely morning view.

  15. I love that you did the pinks, since we are gray and really cold this morning it really made me smile! That lotus shot should be a painting.

  16. The detail in each photo is incredible! The lines along each petal, the overlap of each feather, the contrast between the layers of clouds! They all feel so springy! I’m with you in rejoicing in pink!
