3 - Birds on a Wire

Living in the city there seems to always be enough noise going on for the birds to not stay too long on a wire.
More like you see them there and then by the time you have your camera....they are gone!

Driving back through the countryside after doing emergency dash to youngest son's football game, I followed a wire line along the whole road and saw bird after bird sitting on the wire.
So with trusty camera in hand I slowed right down and tried to get some good shots.
Luckily for me there was nothing else on this country road at 9am on a Saturday because I must have looked so strange slowing down and then stopping in the road, holding my camera out of the car window and then driving off again only to do exactly the same again several meters down the road!

I got several good shots

1 lone bird just snuggled on the wood section

But I decided I like this one the best, so this is my official submitted one for the Scavenger Hunt

How are you finding the birds, are they playing nicely and smiling sweetly for the camera?

Great job! I found it difficult to capture the birds with my iphone; had to filter them to make them interesting. I might try again with my big camera. Don't forget to join the June linky on my blog.
