Mating flight of the phoenix

Bertie the blog-dog , abstract in Flame

Bertie the blog-dog as abstract art.

Lazy sunday. I spent all day playing with my new app, the Flame painter. Wow. This is art. Not the results, but the pure joy of playing with colours. I encourage everyone to try the free online version. Peter Blaškovič other simulations are also worth a look.

Just playing with lines.

Mating flight of the phoenix
Rare sight: the mating flight of the phoenix.

The male circles, showing off his magnificent fire-tail to impress the female above. If she descends, he’s in with a chance. Rarely seen, phoenixes in mating plumage are thought to bring luck, and the male display seen from below is probably the origin of the “angel” myth and shape.
