BIRDS ~~ THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!!

 
Sitting quietly in the car at the park
taking in the view below
 
 
knowing that tranquility came be long-lived or momentary
 

then an avalanche of feathers tumbled out of the sky

 
landing ever so neatly
 
 
on the pavement beside our neighbour's car
 
 
the onslaught continued
 
 
with grace and beauty
 
 
with movement so fast
 
 
so precise
 
 
that the myriad of birds all sorts
 
 
seemed to know exactly what to do
 
 
only permitted to feed within a few minutes
 
 
almost discussing who's to drop in next
 
 
to alight upon this vehicle to receive treats
 
 
and delight all onlookers who luckily had their camera phones ready
 
 
I reckon this happens daily
 
 
with the amount of birds spilling out of the heavens.
 
 
I can only say it had me intrigued!
Don't know about Jim though!?!

    1. Go out and begin clicking, as fast as your little finger can click.

      Then have fun looking at what you took!

      Then, start editing!

    1. Lots of treats were gobbled up.

      I sort of think people frown upon feeding wild birds around here, at least at the Halifax Public Gardens they do.

      Oh well, such is life along the coast!
