Fun Flag Day Facts (In Honor of #FlagDay)


Yesterday, June 13th, some friends let me accompany them on their trip to a monastery in Ossining New York. This is where I took the picture of this American flag that I'm posting in honor of today's holiday: #FlagDay 2016. 

And in the very early morning of this Flag Day, I was honored by a visit from a creature who came to my urban (NYC) rooftop garden. This was somewhat appropriate for the holiday, for the visitor I'm referring to is an American Robin (pictured below).


But he doesn't wait for Flag Day to be patriotic!
He can often be seen in my garden flaunting his RED breast as he eats BLUEberries that are on a saucer atop a WHITE table, as evidenced in the pictures below.



Btw, dear reader, did you know there is another American Robin associated with Flag Day? He is the late Robin Williams, and his connection with the American Flag is that he did a stand-up routine based on Old Glory!

In any event, there are many who like to wave the flag, and these include a few characters that visit my indoor succulent garden (seen below).


ADDENDUM FALL 2018: 

The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.


Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
