June 2021 Challenge: Family


NYCat
 Share

Recommended Posts

Now that we are emerging from our isolation many people are able to see relatives for the first time in a long, long time. So I think Family is a good topic for our times. Please feel free to imagine less traditional meanings of the word. Each entry is limited to  three images and they must be on Alamy. It will be no surprise that my examples will be animals....

Congrats - I loved that rhino. Excited to be the first one to post. Little girl cheering on her dad in the NYC marathon.

Family member I can't wait to see again. At least, unlike some grandparents, I was there when he was born, but it's been 18 months since I've seen him and he's only two, so much too long.

Also, leaving June30, so yeah, Nicaraguan families:

Country family with a red-headed child in mix.  She has dark eyes.   I understand from a friend that red-headed people are not uncommon, but both parents have to have genes for the hair color.

Congratulations, Paulette. Here are my three families.

 

(I'm planning/hoping to stay with the Alamy family, so a timely choice of topic on a couple of fronts.)

Can't see those relatives, they won't let us in the country.

Wish I could have the best one ever but that's not on Alamy.

Right.

The Ravennati even show up the Italians.

This woman kept turning up in Porto but I think this was the only time I bagged her en famille. Never saw me.

(1) and (3) are exactly the sort of images which may put us in legal jeopardy in the new contract- Italy and Portugal have very different rights of personality, I believe.

Ahhh, so many cheerful, upbeat images. Thanks, Paulette and fellow snappers. 

 

I had the same reaction as you initially Edo. I thought oh no! Not a repeat of my 'Covid' theme debacle. I surprised myself finding more pics of people than I thought I had. And wildlife as well. Good subject Paulette!

Congratulations Paulette, well deserved win!

 

Family is a great topic, but of which I don't have much...

I will have to work on this.

 

Here is one.

Love this Steve, mum just looks so proud!

Ha, ha. Thanks Tony. I think mum was keeping a beedy eye on me. These ducks  nest, every year, on an ornamental pool in the building I was working in. They were totally enclosed by offices but every year, when it was time to leave, the parents would tap on the glass entrance doors and the security guys would escort them out of the building, to a larger, open pool in the grounds

My three

 

Mum and Dad clownfish tending to the next generation

Mumma Magpie Lark sitting her two babies. There's a story here. One of these chicks came out of the nest too soon and could not fly. The nest was next door. My hubby went and rescued the baby and we put it in a hanging plant pot in line with the nest, hoping the parents would tend to it. Parents came and fed it each day and we kept it inside in a crate at night to save it from being a snack for the neighbourhood cats. It survived and re-joined the second chick when they fledged. They hung around our yard for a few months afterwards, until the parents chased them away - as happens once they are older and the parents want to breed again. The parents are still here, and did build a new nest in a tree in our yard, but a chick was found dead after a massive storm. Hopefully we will again become "parents" come springtime.

My happy theme of Family has become rather sad lately with so many of our Alamy family planning to leave on July 24. Please continue to share your images whether you are staying or going. I am enjoying them.
