Birds on a wire

By fotobee  
Tulbagh South Africa

I could not resist this cold, shivery shot, taken on one of our pre-breakfast walks recently. It shows four Cape canaries blinking the cobwebs away, on a foreshortened barbed wire fence. I love the run of the wire, and the gold, gold colouring. I had to stand on tiptoe to prevent the sun, which had just bisected the horizon from shining into the barrel of the lens, and flaring the photo out. Hope you like the photo too.

Many thanks to everyone, for looking at the flight shot yesterday. Thank you one and all for opening and voting for it. A great "Thank you", to all the people who gave their valuable comments, all are greatly appreciated !

Keep well,

A very nice group shot. I stayed at Tulbagh for one night last year on the way up to the Kalahari. Shame we didn't have more time to explore the area.

All the best, Dave.
