Cornucopia ...
Cornucopia ...

Another species
of seed eaters ...

the reed was swinging
back and forth
side to side
... in gusty wind
and the gang too ...
... with it ...
gorging on ripe
seeds as well ...
a inexhaustible
cornucopia of Nature ...

LOL it can be a bit of a nightmare trying to photograph a bird on a swaying reed, can't it. Actually worse when I digiscoped!!!

That's a marvellous image Alok - many thanks for showing it to us my friend.
