This was taken a few weeks ago during a particularly warm day.
The grass in the park area had yellowed from lack of rain.
The ibes were coping with the heat as well as they could, though they may have been desiring more than scattered shade.
This photo is available as a print.
This is also my submission into the eighty-third Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
The theme for this one is “Future“.
I feel that this shot fits as animals and their well-being is likely going to be a strong part of our future.
The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:
Week 1 – Patti
Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya
Week 3 – Amy
Week 4 – Tina
This one is hosted by Leya. The next will be hosted by Amy.
I recommend checking out the challenge to see how people interpret each theme.
I also recommend giving it a go.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
