Our Beautiful World....

 
  
The theme this week is
  
'BIRD'
  
ooh one of my favourites!
  
Here is a little Gold Finch taking off into flight caught by my camera just as it
 stretched out its legs fully to let go of the little branch of the thistle,
tucking it's wings to launch forward and up....
 
 
Share your 'Bird' photography stories HERE
 and see what the wonderful DT have done...

Oh wow that photo is stunning, it always amazes me how birds just stand on a branch and balance and then just flick themselves off.. that is such a pretty little fellow too.. we have lots of birds around here, but my favourite is the little finches, I thought they had died out but then I see they have just moved down to the creek where there is a lot of bush and grasses and plenty of places to hide from the butcher birds and maggies that are around our house.. and cant forget the laughter of the kooka burras too!!
