As soon as my feet hit the floor each morning, I let Butch and Kadi out the back door, the door that leads first to my patio and then to the backyard. Once they're outside, I take care of my own immediate personal needs, and then I let the dogs back in the house.
That second time I open the back door is when I take time to look around. Almost always, I see birds perching on top of a telephone pole in my neighbor's yard. Sometimes, if my camera is close by, I snap a few shots of the birds...even though I've done it over and over before. Most of my bird-on-the-pole photos are redundant, but here are a few of my favorites (click on a photo to enlarge it):
"I'm sittin' on top of the world..."
"There is always room at the top..." Adam Ant
"I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way..."
"Take it easy, take it easy, better slow down, girl..."
"Rise up this mornin', smiled with the risin' sun,
three little birds..."
"Wherever we go, whatever we do, we’re gonna go through it together..."
"All by myself...don't want to be..."
"High flyer, high flyer,
fly high tonight,
fly angel, fly higher,
fly safe tonight..."
