Today I decided to take some pictures of the birds that were having a ball in our yard and our little fountain. There were all kinds of birds, some that I had never seen. I was excited! Well, as soon as I set shop nearby they all disappeared. Very frustrating. But these two House Finches pitied me and came by for just a few seconds, no more…
This little Hummer was bathing and protecting his fort when he heard the clicks of my camera. The angry look preceded a quick departure.
This seagull seemed very content being alone with its own shadow and reflection. And I was happy to capture the moment.
“Like a bird on the wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.” (Leonard Cohen)
