Do you like my feather poppy?

By ladynewbury
My contribution for this special weekend.
The Luzon bleeding-heart (Gallicolumba luzonica) is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". The Luzon Bleeding-heart is the species in which the "blood" feature is most pronounced, with the reddish hue extending down the belly, furthering the illusion of blood having run down the bird's breast.
I thought it a fitting tribute for this special weekend.

Sorry for my absence for a while...many reasons... the best being me busy knitting, ready for the arrival of our first Great granddaughter next year. Pam
