Our recent trip to Mexico was a welcome change from the hectic pace of the previous months. But that’s not what I’m writing about today.
Early in the week I manged to capture a fairly good shot of the colourful birds and flowers in the area.
The next morning I was checking the same general location, and saw this…
Now my memory is not always that great, so I went back and checked the previous photograph to confirm. Sure enough, the flower had been red, and now it was yellow. So the next day I decided to pick a flower, and check it every few hours during the day. (As I mentioned last post – it was a very slow relaxing holiday.)
First thing in the morning, the flower was definitely yellow.
Within a few hours hints of red began to appear.
By mid-afternoon it was trending toward orange.
And by the end of the day the flower was red.
The next morning, the flowers were yellow again, and repeated the cycle. All of which proves two things:
- Flowers can change colour dramatically over the course of a single day; and
- I am easily amused.
Hope you all have a great New Year’s Eve.
