This week's challenge selection is bird by me. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
I just noticed that these are all backyard birds that I picked for today. There are certainly others in the area that would have been good to show, too. The bird I show in my header was photographed through a makeshift blind. I draped a black cloth inside my back screen door, and poked a hole for the lens right in the middle. It was a nifty gimmick, and I hope to try it again.
