30 Days of Photographs IV: Rising

It's almost over now, my friends, only a few more days to go and then we can drive a stake through Bob's heart, cut off his head, set fire to his body, and scatter his ashes over three separate bodies of water.

Link up, and try to smile while you're commenting on the other photos.


Day 26: Rising

This little fellow was really cranky when I wouldn't feed him. In fact, in this photo he's already thinking about taking off into the air and trying to use me and my camera for target practice.

  1. As much as I love birds, and this one's got great webbed feet, I don't think I'd have messed with this one either. There is evil in those eyes.

  2. The wages for posing for photos is food. You should know that Ziva.

  3. What? You took a picture of a bird?! Next you'll be taking pictures of cats. Um... I mean... CHEESE!

    Sigh. I'm really starting to worry about you.

  4. Never tick off a bird that is in range of using your head for a target.

  6. "he's already thinking about taking off into the air and trying to use me and my camera for target practice." HA!!!

    Little fellow? He looks big enough to serve for Thanksgiving dinner, or whatever it is you Finns do to celebrate the ruination of an entire race of whatever people you displaced when you took over your country.

    Oops, that turned out to be way more political than I meant it to be.

    Lovely photo, Ziva, even though that bright-yellow beak makes me cringe with fear at the prospect of getting my eyes pecked out. Because that's what birds do, they peck your eyes out.

  9. He does look kinda pissed off. Look at that permanent frown.

    ReplyDelete
  10. He does looks pissed. Maybe someone else with a camera gave him breadcrumbs. Now he expects anyone holding a camera to provide for the flock.

  11. Seagulls are evil. First they steal your food and then they crap on you.

    Seagulls always look - and act - completely mad to me! We had one fix us with his beady little eyes in Venice one time. He sat on a gondola below the pizza place where we were eating and psyched us into throwing pizza crust for me. To give him his due, he was very entertaining, because he would catch every piece!

  13. Yep, it is, and I think it's out to get me.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Of course you do. They peck your eyes out, you know.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think those eyes probably shine in the dark...

  16. Damn it, I've always asked for money.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I know.. I'm a little worried myself. But there will be no cheese photos, and no more bird photos. Or cat photos. There might be more alcohol, though.

  18. A pelican? That sounds really really unpleasant. :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you, Linda! Sometimes I feel like that bird, attitude-wise. ;)

  20. Luckily, we don't celebrate the ruination of an entire race of people we displaced when we took over our country, that's a decidedly American thing to do, just like pecking your eyes out is a decidedly birdlike thing to do.

  21. I recognize that frown, I've been seeing it in the mirror for the last 26 days.

  22. Lazy gulls, depending on the charity of others.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It doesn't get much more evil than that!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well see, that's different. Your seagull did tricks for his food. This one was just staring at me. Had he done a few tricks I might've fed him.

  25. Lovely capture. I hope you got hit !

    ReplyDelete
  26. You hope I got hit with bird poop? Such hostility! Who pissed in your cereal this morning? :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh umm, heck did I say that out loud???

    ReplyDelete
  28. Bet you did get hit eh??? snicker

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm happy to tell you I did NOT get hit. I have mad poop evading skills.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh wow! Chickens in Finland have webbed feet.

    Very nice photo.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks, Shawn.You're clearly no expert on birds, though, that's obviously an ostrich, not a chicken.
