  3. totally delightful Deborah!!

  4. I really like the way the fence provides a pattern that sets off the birds.

    • It was pretty neat. I was in an Elementary school yard…the very back field where they play soccor, and run the dreaded mile….you know the out back. 🙂 On the edge of the outback and the blacktop is where the slide, and uneven bars are; that is where I sat ever so still waiting for the Goldfinch to return. I’d seen him land on the fence on my approach, and knowing birds are pretty much territorial, and habitual I thought he’d return.

      I slowly advanced into the the school yard and the Junco landed on the fence that separates the Kindergarteners from the rest of the classes. Despite not finding any Varied Thrushes it was a good morning birding.

      • I like hearing the story that goes with your wonderful photos. I sure remember the “outback”~ 🙂

  5. Love the framing and lighting. And the symbolism of the birds passing through the fence. The birds look alive and alert.

    • “Just passin’ through”. That’s about the size of this visit. They checked me out…and I them and off they went… through the fence! In my next life I hope I have wings. I would like the knowledge I’ve acquired here on Earth as me, and wings to fly. I would love to be a Kite, but we don’t get to chose I bet. 🙂

  6. Pretty birds, lovely shots

  7. Great captures. I love the fencing also.

  8. Deborah, these guys are beautiful. I love seeing them in the fence cloth. So many contrasts. I can’t help but think about how fences symbolize being contained and trapped. These guys are just passing through (litterally). Great capture.

    • Thank you so much Dan! You’re right about the fences and how for us they usually are keeping us enclosed or something trapped. I love that they were able to sit a spell then fly through it too.
