Silhouette…


A few years ago I lived on acreage that was home to abundant birdlife and spectacular sunrises. Early one morning I captured my feathered neighbours in  silhouette as they danced in celebration of a glorious dawn.

Silhouettes…


In a previous post I wrote about my ‘mad mower’ incident when I owned acreage in the stunning Sunshine Coast hinterland. Whilst that post was about the humorous and somewhat dangerous moments I experienced living there, this post is quite different.
The Weekly Photo Challenge theme this week is Silhouettes, which reminded me of a particular morning there when I watched a group of birds gathered on the stumps of a recently cut tree.
I watched them for some time and later one of them flew over and sat upon the railing of my verandah, not more than a metre from where I sat.
Maybe he felt it was time he watched me, just as I had spent time watching him and his friends.

In flight…
After some time, I think they became as curious of me, as I was of them…
