Three Months

Three Months

from 25.00

Here, at three months of age, our chicks are just past the half-way point of chick-hood. Their wings are growing longer, and while they do stand on two legs and flap those long wings, they’re not moving around too much. They stick to within 30 feet or less of their natal nest sites—so not to miss a feeding by mom or dad—and they still do quite a bit of sitting. That’s because this is a heavy growing period, and much of their energy goes to that. However, while sitting, they practice their nest-building skills, and they preen. Oh, do they preen. So much preening. Preening helps remove the down from the tips of their growing adult plumage, so we’re starting to see chicks with white feathered bodies and dark downy heads. When stretched, their chocolate-colored wings look as if they’re sporting fringe. But that’s just down that hasn’t fallen off yet. It’s an odd look; however, the really interesting looks are yet to come. Just wait!

Photography on metal.

  • Satin finish/minimal glare.

  • Ready to hang.

  • The 12x12-inch and 8x8-inch metal prints come with 1/8-inch rounded corners and float 1/2″ off the wall when hung.

  • The 4x4-inch metal prints come with square corners and a magnetic back.

A little about the metal: The image is infused directly into specially coated sheets of aluminum, adding a magical luminescence to the image. Professional lab testing shows image stability of the metal print is two to four times that of traditional silver-based photo papers. And for those of you who live in salty, humid climates like Hawaii, I've done my own testing, too. I left a print on my covered lanai to test for corrosion. One year later and no rust or pits of any kind have appeared. In fact, cleaning the dust and salt buildup is fast and super easy--a wet rag and mild soap. Because if you're like me, you'd rather be out in nature than inside the house wielding a dust rag.
