Thanks Claire. Enjoy your seaside visit! 🙂
Beautiful. We have the same picture looking down the hill, but in our case the birds congregate along the top of two wych elms. A lay by for feathery travellers. Thank you for the image.
Love it! Makes me smile!
delightful. Such a lovely fresh looking day.
Perfect title for the image, for the poem, and for both together! (Maybe for life in general too – which is a strong argument for art)
Albert, thank you for your thoughtful words. Art is the thread that weaves life together.
Very interesting. Full of life.
I think you have in your own way come upon an ancient combination we humans have done to celebrate spring. Swedes celebrate spring with a vase full of pussy willows to which florists have carefully tied colourful bird feathers. Not a coincidence, your vision and theirs matching from such seemingly different parts of the compass and the time grid. link to example: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-F5V_1r31qww/T2r6Uyw1_JI/AAAAAAAAB2k/2L2PzCQB5RU/s1600/BOUQUETmm.jpg
Niaih, thank you so much for writing and making that connection! How wonderful to know the way the Swedes celebrate Spring. Best to you!
The goal of this challenge is to post a black and white photo each day for five days and nominate someone each day. Check out my other ones if you haven’t already: Day 1 and Day 2.
I nominate Leaf and Twig! I hope you enjoy if you do it!
Thank you so much for the nomination.
Love the bird silhouettes.
🙂 Lovely haiku!
Lovely! This one made me smile…broadly.
This is so great!
I believe I heard a redwing today too! 🙂
As free as a bird..a bird who celebrates life and existence.A bird that somehow feels pain and loneliness but could not find ways on how to express it.Nice scene that shows nothing but life.
What a wonderful thought
whimsical – I love trees that wear feathers!
This is beautiful! A wonderful view on trees in wintertime. Thanks for sharing
Reblogged this on UNICLICKS UNIPICS.
That seems like a meeting place where the birds make important decisions… perhaps about the search for their “king”?
Very nice and beautiful!
Ah, the rewards of looking up from time to time … very nice image.
