The view from my perch on the mountain


After getting in trouble for wandering off and staying gone for nearly 5 hours when I said I was “just going out to shoot a few frames and I’ll be back soon” I decided to stay close to home today. After nearly 1/4 of a century together I have learned not to irritate THE BOSS more than once a week.

That’s not to say I don’t do it, it just means I only do it when I absolutely have to.

Even so, I had to get outdoors and shoot a few frames. Today I turned my lens to a few burdz.











Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did getting them.

    Beautiful simply beautiful Chip, there’s so much charm in those little creatures that to me is missing in the big birds, though they have a certain something else, ‘Presence and majesty’ sums them up. Keep on snapping

    No burdz, Heide? I see burdz but that just might be because I’ve suffered a lot of head trauma.
