Lovely stark image. Very nice.
That was a very serious bird, DS.
No, not really, it was serious about all the extra crumbs it was eyeballing.
The critter has chosen its watching place well - I'm the king of the pole, you poor ants there underneath :)
Ha, exactly, and he was perched there for a long time.
Excellent capture. There is an intense feeling of tragedy in this image. As if it was the last bird. Great work Jeanna
Yes I kind of thought, "apocalypse," myself, Kwarkito.
I just want to add that "The Last Bird" would be an excellent name for this if it were better and I did something with it. Am tempted to add an aka in the post title.
Thanks, it's no head coming out of the darkness but I guess it's okay for a Saturday.
Thanks for sharing your bird/eclipse pic. Nice.
I hope it wasn't looking directly into the sun.
The bird did all the work, Thomas.
...what a cool shot!
Thanks, Tom, see you soon.
It's no crow following you around for a chip, but thanks.
I remember the eclipse of 1999, when we were living in the South of England and the light was very strange, it was like blue hour at midday and all the birds stopped singing and started to roost-weird. Great silhouette!
I've heard similar stories from the total eclipsers this year, but it was like a long, pleasant lunch for us. The glasses and wielders mask (see a few posts down) worked very well and what we cud see was quite cool. I think a lot of those birds hang around the terrace cuz lots of places to perch and food galore.
Hello, that is a cool image. The eclipse viewing was exciting. Out skies were too cloudy here. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!
Sounds like we had similar experiences, Eileen. Hope you're having a nature filled weekend.
How forlorn looking with its head drooping in sorrow! Great shot!
It sure was content to be up there, I'm thinking it struck gold with so many more people providing bits of food over lunch hour during the eclipse.
cool image. I like it :)
Thanks and Go Pack Go.
Hi Jeanna, I hope it didn't damage its eyes! The lighting in the photo gives it a bit of a James Herbert feel, a bite eerie!xx
Ha ha, especially being up so high but I'm thinking a bird has more sense than our president. I've seen The Fog, will have to catch more of his films.
Now this image has ambiance. I love it. Hope you enjoyed the eclipse. #MySundayPhoto
Funny because although I like it, it doesn't at all reflect the real mood of the afternoon.
Oh how confusing for the wildlife!
We only had a partial eclipse here but from what I can tell it was a bit of a head scratcher.
Such a good photo, bird clearly hadn't kept up with eclipse news on social media! :)
Lol, it kind of looks like its texting in the photo, MMCB.
I love the gritty feel of this Thank you for linking up
Wouldn't it look good in a field of heather?
A beautiful artistic image. Gordon.
Thanks, Gordon, this is what happens when you're too cheap to buy the lenses and filters needed to shoot an eclipse.
