I took this shot in September of 2008 and was astounded by the cooperation of the birds. To find other monochrome shots please visit Monochrome Maniacs.

It never ceases to amaze me how birds can land on anything and never miss their mark. Great shot.

Nice one!

Once in a while the little beggars can be helpful. Usually, I find them a trial because they never seem to want to be still!

Lovely work! (power lines and all...)

this is very cool. Your right, it wouldn't have been the same with just one bird.

Liz said...

Great shot! I didn't notice the birds at first.

Very 'kewl' of those birds to remain posed at watch while you snapped this one ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
