If not to touch the sky.

This week’s photo challenge is silhouettes. Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands and WordPress for this topic.

Thanks again to Paula for hosting her wonderful Thursday’s Special non-challenge.

Thanks once again to Stewart Monckton for hosting the Wild Bird Wednesday challenge.

Thanks to the kind folks at Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday challenge.


A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.

Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.

Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™

  1. And why don’t we have wings? This is a beautiful photo, Babsje. Thank you 🙂

  2. Nice image – not every bird shot needs to look like a guide book shot.

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne
