~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #201: Three of a Kind ~


As I was thinking about what photos to present in this challenge, I realized that for my Wordless Wednesday posts there are usually three photos focusing on one theme to tell a story wordlessly. All of my snaps this week are from the archives. Hope you enjoy!

Cape Disappointment has two lighthouses. From the beach where I walk with my beagles, the North Head lighthouse is a prominent feature. It overlooks what has been called “the graveyard of the Pacific” by seafarers, for the dangers presented by the Columbia River entering the Pacific Ocean. When the lighthouse was reopened for visitors, Creighton and I jumped at the chance to see it from the inside

Bald Eagles – Haliaeetus leucocephalus

This breeding pair of Bald Eagles was not happy to have an almost mature Bald Eagle intrude upon their territory. Notice their expressions and body language!

The ubiquitous gulls fascinate me for their various feathering and behavior patterns. As with eagles, gull maturity can be determined by the color of their bills, in addition to their body and wing feather colors.

Jack-In-The-Pulpit ~ Arisaema triphyllum

Three stems of Jack-In-The-Pulpit emerged in late spring – to my delight! For as long as I have known about them, I wanted this fascinating looking plant. A perennial, it continues to please me every spring and summer.

Wherever you find Three of a Kind, please honor our earth, be charitable and stay safe.🐾

Thank you Ann Christine, for a theme with so many possibilities!

    Perfect – and I had to look up that strange plant! Very interesting. And it hasn’t even got a Swedish name! Thank you for posting it!

  2. These are so beautiful..But these Bald Eagles caught my attention.

    Fantastic! I love the eagles. I could watch them all day. Well done on the prompt. Donna

  5. I found a similar plant hidden in a back section of a nearby public garden. My first thought was that the odd flowers looked like cobras, and then suddenly the name ‘Cobra Lily’ flashed up in my head. They have purple stripes, not green, but are otherwise very similar, and so striking, and looking them up I see they are both from the genus Arisaema. Now I too covet one of these plants. Great shots.
