Here is an ad in today's GrigoPost:
A new show of the vibrant and wonderfully unique Textile and Wearable Art created by Australian artist, Rommie Remmington, will open tomorrow.  During Fiesta de Cuenca there will be special gallery hours from 11 to 6. In addition to Rommie's Textile Art, there will be an "All Things Alpaca" crafts exhibition by Patricia Espadero Ponce. Pumamaqui Galerias is located on Honorato Vazquez 6-28, right next door to Moliendo's Cafe, between Borrero and Hermano Miguel. Both exhibits will be at the Galerias for the month of November. Happy Festival de Cuenca!
So I stopped in to see Rommie and Charles as they were setting up.
Hope you enjoy the photos.  That was the day's excitement,   Cheers, Al  

The display includes many different kinds of apparel

Very durable stuff

This one reminded me of a bleached cow skull

There is even some wall art

Very colourful alapaca jackets

Charles looks good in hats of any style

The Pumamaqui Galleria has a lovely open courtyard

The bee was oblivious to my presence

I love furry fronds

Colourful fronds too

Lots of ferns here

As soon as I opened my window this morning, Tom Thumb was hovering, waiting to be fed, so I fed him right from my hand.   Then he continued to visit all day, chased by 3 competitors.
Hope you enjoy the photos.  That was the day's excitement,   Cheers, Al  

131028 Tom likes my nectar

He has 3 competitors to chase away

He arrives almost every 15 minutes

Keeping a wary eye for the others

He is getting accustomed to the shutter noise 

Such a graceful boy

He hovers so easily

Putting on the brakes

Swooping in

Watching me

Cool abstract feel to this missed shot....
