Hello Everyone

Here is my reveal for Bird is the Word. The new word to use is SHADOW
I took this picture last Saturday at the Floriade. The Floriade is the horticultural expo, staged once every 10 years, showcases the world's best flowers, plants, trees, fruits and vegetables. More than 100 exhibitors will together pay tribute to horticulture at Floriade 2012 in Holland. The park comprises five unique worlds: themed zones connected by wooded areas. Worlds in which you will see, feel and experience nature in a constantly changing way. This is a once in a decade flower show so it's even more spectacular than Keukenhof, and Keukenhof is already amazing." I chose this picture for the long shadow of the bird people, it looks like the shadow flies at the end of a long day.

here some close up

Thanks for coming by, and your comments really are encouraging to me!!
