In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Ornate.”
This weeks photo challenge is Man vs. Nature – “Ornate”
At our house, it’s between this backyard blue heron showing off its natural ornateness….
…. or my wife’s hand-crafted creation… a shell wall hanging decoration.
You be the judge…..
That’s a tough choice–both are ornately beautiful!
I like the shells, they are tastefully arranged!
PS: I was sorting my ‘reader list and discovered that for some reason you had evaporated… Now reinstated to your proper place!
Thank you for cooling me down so I achieved a solid state again!
Tough choice but I’d go for the wall hanging. After all, when you’ve seen one heron, you’ve seen them all if you add it to your lifetime bird list. Beautiful shells in her wall hanging. I know you’ve been beach combing again. What fun!
Yes. When we walk the dogs on the beach, we take three plastic bags. Two for pooper scoopers and one to collect shells!
Well, as an animal lover I’d have to go with the blue heron but the shell creation is stunning as well. How’s that for a cop out answer? 😉 Seriously though really nice photos.
Good answer! I’m a cop out kinda guy myself.
Al, great minds think alike (great minds being yours and mine, as we both chose to do a ‘Man vs Nature’ for this challenge!)
My great mind is telling me that your wife’s shell creation is more ornate!
That’s the first time anyone called my mind “great” Margie , but truth in blogging dictates I reveal that your blog first gave me the man vs nature idea. I’m hoping you don’t take me to court for plagiarizing!
And yes, Patty’s creation is far more ornate and there’s certainly fewer of them.
I’m sure the title has been used by others before I used it! I was actually thinking of ‘Plants vs Zombies’, but didn’t have any photos to fit…
I’m might partial to pearls! Lovely Patty.
Hi Jeri! Didn’t realize you were still following my blog. How are things in my hometown?
You know better than to pick the blue heron.
Yes, Jon, I do. Amazing how nearly 48 years of marriage can make a guy so smart.
