Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #25: Birds

Carly is in the mood for some birds this week:

Flying BIRDS. Nesting BIRDS. Gooney BIRDS. Looney BIRDS. Real BIRDS. Stuffed BIRDS, both the toy and the sustenance. BIRDS with winter plumage, BIRDS taking a bath. BIRDS and their babies. BIRDS all alone. BIRDS in their houses. Red BIRDS. Black BIRDS. Bald BIRDS. BIRDS on a wire. Real BIRDS. Fake BIRDS. BIRDS.

Unfortunately, there aren't many birds in my area at this time of year. Occasionally I will see some geese, but I didn't have time to go to the areas where they congregate. But, we do have plenty of toy birds in our house.

My daughter really wanted this stuffed penguin a couple of years ago.

Also, don't many people call airplanes birds? Well, how about the Blue Angels?

I don't have any pictures for the extra credit. I don't know the difference between a snow egret and a snow leopard. Go check out Carly's blog for the other entries this week. There might be some pictures of actual birds there.

Hi Mike :)

WELL DONE! I said it was good to think outside the box on this assignment, and being a great lover of stuffed animals, I am thrilled to see them represented! I have a favorite picture of a little penguin looking out a window, and this guy reminds me of him! Too cute! Does it have a name?

Blue angels... good idea!

Have a great week. :)

The penguin is really cute and cuddly :)

Suzanne R said...

Cute stuffed penguin, and the blue angels definitely fit my definition of "birds." Great job!

My son had a stuffed penguin that was his constant companion for years. His dad has been storing it for him just in case he wants to pass it down to the grandkids some day.

Tammy said...

Wow, those angels are VERY close. Who doesn't love a fluffy penquin.

I like the Birds thou you posted. I have a 26 year old neice who pilot's the US C-17 back and forth from Germany and Iraq.

You did OK without taking a photo of a real, live bird. ;-)
