:secrets1: I think it's true that orchids like to be bothered very little.

Yeah, I believe so. The other day all it took was just one googly-eyed glance in their direction for a flower to shrivel up and die.  :'(

 :???: Do you have snakes instead of hair? Gorgon for plants! :lol: ¡Estou brincando! I hope I got that correct.

Great minds think alike! I was about to reply that it comes from eating too much Gorgonzola cheese.

:lol: My hair definitely needs to be tamed (first thing on my to-do list once this pandemic is over) but it is not alive!  :P

:grin: You got that correct, except for the ¡...we don't use those in Portuguese.  ;D

I love how the wingtips look like fingers.

Thanks Tank and Mags for your niceness.

I find peacocks so fricken bizarre, natural selection is mostly sensible but sexual selection can be truly weird, Charley must of been on something when he invented it.  All I can say is don't fall for it girls, a fancy tail won't last or bring home the worms.
She could enjoy Mr Fancy Tail now and settle for Mr Drab Sensible later.
Ye, it might work like that, I don't think I altogether approve though.
The peacock lives at the Sydney Zoo.



On Wednesday I visited the local bat colony which is huge and right in the middle of town.
I took lots of pics and this much less than perfect thing was the best I got of one in flight.
It was late morning, they were stirred up for some reason.
