Theme day - The Color Red

The color red symbolizes romantic love - so here's to all you lovers out there:

"Love is the flower of life,
and blossoms unexpectedly and without law,
and must be plucked where it is found,
and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration."

They really look like Lovebirds!
I wonder if the alligator lurking nearby can eat them both in one bite.
I must be bipolar.
Or a gemini.
Great post. I would just have shown a picture of Karl Marx.

Gerald England said...

red is for danger
and love is very dangerous

Z said...

A literary interpretation of red. Wait, that doesn't sound quite right, but you know what I mean. Gerald has an interesting take.

Kuanyin said...

Lovely combination...mine has to do with love too! :-)

Abraham Lincoln said...

Nice. I like to see some emotions expressed someway in photography and it is seldom seen in bird except at feeding time. This is a nice shot.

I also looked at the link to "not enough red", but this "touch of red" with the accompanying words was perfect for me! Really nice!

marie6 said...

Very romantic and those two birds give it the right touch, if only love was always so beautiful.

A great shot, Isabella, great to get the birds at that instant.
There is just the right amount of red and nicely placed.

Gail's Man said...

Nicely taken shot.

Nathalie said...

A few discreet touches of red, almost fuschia really, but your red poppy certainly makes up for any complaints!
Very interesting comments for your readers about the meaning of red and the dangers of love...

ruth said...

Gosh, talk about plucking flowers and you'll get rauf going and murderous, eh? And I was going to say "awwww."
