See the day that dawns in air,
Brings along its toil and care;
From the lap of night it springs
With heaps of business on its wings

The birds in flight are Canada Geese, the ones on the light standard arms are ring-billed gulls.

I like both of these ...I enlarged the first to see all the birds on the light, what a fun shot. The second is beautiful, wonderful composition with the birds in flight.

The birds had scattered around that lamp in such good order that it was hilarious.

Oh you have geese too! :) I think they make the most beautiful patterns ever. I love how the seagulls look as though they're sitting on a fairground ride :)

love your sky photos and the great quote!

VioletSky said...

Thank you all.

chrome3d and Kitty, These gulls had taken over two light standards in the parking lot and I had to get closer. I also thought of a fairground carousel.

Hildred and Charles, come visit here - most of the geese never leave.
