Anniversary Flowers

After Karen shared her self-care flowers last week, I was surprised by a very similar bouquet for my anniversary.

Red roses…

(maybe a bit too red for my camera to capture…)

and

Peruvian lilies, also known as alstroemeria.

Seemed appropriate for my pink theme, don’t you think?

Curved-bill Thrasher

This is my first time participating in Bird Photography weekly. 

We started seeing a lot more curved-bill thrashers in our yard when we started a compost heap. They seem to like the insect larvae, although this one is going after some white millet.

Do any of you more experienced photographers know why I got wavy lines in the background? (Not too happy about the prominent irrigation hose either, but I’m not going to Photoshop it out).
