Photo Hunt - Birds




The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is birds. So here are some birds... Top is a crow in flight outside my home. In the middle are two amorous pigeons in a neighbour's garden. Bottom is a sparrow tucking into sunflower seeds in Paris

These are all great. The pigeons make a sweet couple and that sparrow in the sunflower is wonderful. The crow almost looks like he's flying into a cyclone.

Happy weekend.

ian said...

the top photo is my fave... it feels so... ominous- what with the grainy quality and just-caught-in-time angle... what camera did you use for the crow's pic?

Love all three of these. Pigeons are such goofy birds but they look positively romantic in your photo! The crow is elegant and the sparrow is adorable.

Have a great weekend!

Those photos are fantastic Jams. Especially the last one.
Happy weekend to you.

Randi said...

What a wonderful take on the theme! The first photo is so dramatic! The second - very romatic. But I love the last one!
Happy weekend.

The pigeons look really affectionate.

girasoli said...

Great photos. The first one looks like it could be from the movie "The Birds"! Love how "in love" the two pigeons look in the second photo. Am a big fan of sunflowers. Cool photo of the sparrow.

All three are great but there's something really special about that middle shot of the two pigeons. Nice job!
