#Creating Context – Birds of Paradise

A funny thing happened on the way to the bedroom…

My friend gave me these beautiful paintings that his boss was giving away. These two birds look like they’re have a conversation with one another.

I was about to hang them up in my bedroom. My roommate took a look and told me the beautiful birds are called “Birds of Paradise”.

I was curious to learn more, so I Googled them. Apparently, there’s many different types of Birds of Paradise, and I came across a funny mating ritual that was quite captivating.

I’m surprised that female chicks dig this. 🙂

    It’s so funny that female birds find that attractive. It would scare me away! 😂

      Me too! I would be scared to have no where to go because someone danced in a semicircle around me. 😀 I suppose it’s the extreme dominance factor that is mistaken for confidence?

    Ha ha, yes – male birds are generally the prettier ones that have to put on a fancy display for the females – it’s fascinating to watch 😊 🦜
