May's topic for the Focus on Life 2014 weekly photography challenge is
'In, At and About'
and for week 19, Sally over at
The Studio Sublime, gave us the prompt:
Good Things Inside
She told us that this was a good prompt to think 'outside' the box.
Not quite sure I've accomplished that this week or not but since Mother's Day is Sunday, I thought a photo of these might fit the bill and be rather appropriate.
These are Kiki's eggs.
Coco and Kiki are our Peach Faced Lovebirds.
|Coco's on the left here, and Kiki's on the right.|
Coco's my baby and can do no wrong.
But Kiki,...she's a piece of work!
I still love her though.
She's just barely 2 years old. Coco is somewhere between 8 to 10 years old (I simple can't remember the year he was born - bad mommy!!).
None of their eggs have ever had anything 'inside'. Well, one did last year, but it didn't form all the way and after about 28 days or so, she just quit sitting on them. As I cleaned up their cage the other day and held these up to the sunlight, it doesn't look like there's anything at all in these little guys either.
Poor Kiki. She's such a good little 'Mama in preparation'.
She's still sitting on her little eggs, protecting them with all she's got and building her little nest.
Driving Coco nuts. (you know, just like normal pregnant women do to their men!)
And, she's got 'good things inside' as far as I'm concerned.
Good instincts and a pretty little song voice.
And one of these times maybe she'll have eggs with 'good things inside'.
|Coco and Kiki "Inside" their "love shack"! ;-)|
Hop on over to all the other participants this week and see what 'good things' they have 'inside'!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Happy Mother's Day to all of you Moms out there! (Including Kiki!!)
