red head / red headed


solo post - L
A red head wearing red! Isn't that supposed to be a no-no? T bought this dress at a vintage store. It's the only red piece of clothing she's ever owned I think, but when she puts this dress on I think she looks striking. (As her mother, I can say that). This photo was taken on our way from a reception to my cousin's river house in Kentucky. There was a black bull in that field and we thought the contrast would be a cool photo, so I pulled over. T got out of the car and the cow ran away, not casually walked, but ran as if he was scared of that red dress. Funny, I always thought bulls charged red. Not really, they just charge because of the motion of the cape. Red is just used because it's bold and striking, cattle are actually color blind. Anyway, I like this photo. / "An unmistakable bird, the Red-headed Woodpecker is striking at rest and in flight, showing its colors of red, black, and white." I got to see this beautiful bird up close in a very neat structure on the proptery of Shaker Village. Along one of the nature trails there was a bird blind made for easy observation of birds. We entered this building in the middle of the woods that had one way glass on it. Within a little while all types of birds where feeding at the various feeders that were set up. We saw purple finches, blue jays, red-winged black birds, chipmunks, squirrel and this red headed woodpecker. The variety of birds was not that unusual but it was neat to be able to observe them without scaring them off.

She does look great it that dress. I did not know that about cows and color ...good to know since I am always walking through fields dotted with them over here.
