Pink-eyed Rock Star

This snowy egret reminded me of a 1980s rock star from the hair band era. What do you think? Flock of Seagulls? Cinderella? Bon Jovi? I googled "hair bands" and had myself a good laugh.

Have a great weekend, y'all. Rock on!!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh Gail, he is a rock star for sure. Chemo went well. Nausea pills are wonderful. Just slight waves of it. and the pills pop and I'm ok, I'm ok. lol

Gorgeous photos of this critter. I love their pink eyes. See ya next week. I hear things get worse before they get better. I can tell "chemo brain" has set in a little bit mushy. Kind a confusing. But ok. Just so you know.

See ya Monday, ♥,Renae
