shadows


several months ago
Toonman called me to come to the window
 look
 there are some birds making a nest
on that wrought iron fence top
 outside our window

turned out
they werent actually making a nest
 but
stopping to pick up pieces of twigs or stems to carry off
and
make a nest somewhere else

 before she flew off she posed for me

  8. The lighting is beautiful, and I love the texture on the metal. That little bird really brings the shot alive. Too bad she wasn't making a nest for you to watch.

  9. If you hadn't told me that was a fence, I would have thought the wee birdie was perched under train wheels! Excellent shot!
