Birds? Do I have a photo of Birds?

The word prompt from citySonnet photo a day challenge: Birds

As a matter of fact I do have the couple of bird photos!!!  The latest photos are of a Red-backed Fairy Wren. I spent a bit of time in my garden trying to get a photo or two of a Red-backed Fairy Wren. The usual dominant bird in the garden, the Yellow-faced Honeyeaters were on their game and chasing anyone out of “their” garden. The male Red-backed Fairy Wren was a good target due to his brilliant colouring. So I had to contend myself with a quick photo of the female who was less targeted by the Honeyeaters.

She sat for a while

The fence is a good place to grow ferns

Looking out

The word prompt for the photo challenge from Sue at Weekly Prompts: Top of the Hill

Dots of sunlight.
The gathering storm.
In the distance
blue sky
blue hills
Darkness approaches.
The chill breeze
sends shivers.
The sound of
distant thunder,
the smell of rain.
Shall we stay
on the top of the hill,
or run back
to the shelter
and warmth.
I want to stay
and keep drinking
the view
from the top of the hill.

If you want to join in here are a few ideas from Becky.

The theme for squares this month is ‘In the Pink‘ and the one rule as always is that your main photograph must be square. After that the world is your oyster, or should I say flamingo?! To help you get started here are some ideas you might want to consider;

  1. In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
  2. Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
  3. Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
  4. There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?

Squares is a daily challenge, so your photographs can be from the archives or brand new. Don’t forget though to keep your photo square, and to pingback with #InthePink.
