dragon rampant regardant

this is for the mad minute word challenge... today's word is "vexillology" which does not mean the study of annoyances as one might think, but rather the study of flags... i expect i have this wrong - but the first thing that came to mind was heralds, standards and colours... and once my mind got stuck on that, it wouldn't come unstuck...


at any rate, i had to look up the description of the attitude of the dragon, so whether i have engaged in vexillology or heraldry or some other "ology", i have nonetheless learned something new :)

the above image was heavily edited in nik's colour efex... i no longer know which filters i applied, but there's at least 4 or 5 ;p

an alternate version of the king in my other album... because i got to playing and kind of liked one of the unintended results :)

Fav for sheer fabulousness and heraldry is, while a study in it's own right, also a sub category of "vexillology" so this is a winner on multiple levels! Just an aside - my spell checker wants to change "vexillology" to "exobiology" Lol - random weirdness.
