Caturday Art: these were really fun photoart images to work on and create ~ each was first turned from full color to sepia tone (saving a full color copy). The lorikeet was then silhouetted from the color copy and layered onto the sepia layer. On the sepia layer of each child (my infant grandson, and my granddaughter), I slightly blurred the backgrounds, but sharpened their hair a little. Lastly, a frame was made by piecing together the lorikeet's feathers; the frame was beveled and laid on top of the other two layers.
Both images also work for Photo Hunt: Colours.
Lorikeets are very colorful little birds!
Both were photographed (at different times) at the Brevard Zoo, Melbourne, FL.
Florida vacation photo ~
During an early morning drive along Black Point Drive through the
Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge we came across this rather large
fellow enjoying his "cat nap" in a "sunpuddle".
Thankful there were no real cats napping in real sun puddles nearby ...
