A very wet Great tit

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.

Red onion

January is a very dark month in Denmark. Rain, wind, snow, and often a gray sky – what a relief to find an onion who doesn’t care about all that, busy as it is with producing new sprouts. Spring seems to be somewhere, though still far away to the human eye.
