Then comes 3 months of autumn and time to prepare for the winter. This summer have been very warm and sunny, with temperatures over 30 degrees. I wouldn’t mind the sun and its warmth to stay close to us a bit longer, but I guess folks on the other side of the planet are waiting and looking forward to use their swimsuits, – so that would be a bit unfair. Luckily I have all the photos, hopefully enough to keep the blog warm for a while.
My third everyday photo in the Facebook challenge is a good example of how everyday can be extraordinary if one keep eyes and ears open. I heard sounds from a water filled previous sandbox, which we had left, behind a barn. Probably an animal playing – it was very a hot day. Quietly I went there with my camera ready, expecting to see a funny sight and get a nice shot.
But what I saw was a little bird which had fallen into the water, probably on its first attempt to fly. I quickly grabbed a spade, and lifted the little wet bird – a Great tit – up from the water, – it looked as it was almost dead. Next thing was to let the warm sun dry the feathers, it took a while, and the little thing had to rest in the meantime, but slowly it began to look like a bird again. About an hour later, it raised its little head and looked at me as if saying: “…What are you staring at, have you never seen a bird before?…” Then it took two or three bird-jumps into the green bush, and in less than a second its mother was by its side, ready to feed it. Wow, I had saved a bird, that was..great..tit.
“…What are you staring at, have you never seen a bird before?…”
I have been invited to join a little fun assignment on Facebook, which is to post 5 everyday life photos, and at the same time nominate 5 others to do the same. I´m normally not involving myself in such games, but since it is a good opportunity to continue my blogging, I have accepted, and will post this as the first one. Be aware, perhaps you will be nominated next.
