Just before the sun vanished completely these birds landed above me in a large Oak tree. The waxing crescent moon seems to add just enough contrast. Thanks for looking, Tom

Interesting shot. Thought you might register this scene which came to mind immediately. Cheers,


Tom on January 16, 2008

That's a great shot Hank. These guys come in every night and it is hard to not think of the Hitchcock classic. Nature is seldom as dangerous as the mind makes it out to be. Thanks for sharing that image. Tom

Beautiful, beautiful shot, Tom. I'm sure that meditating on it for fifteen minutes before bedtime would bring deep sleep and lovely dreams (so long as no thoughts of Hitchcock intervened)! Cheers, Marilyn

Tom on January 17, 2008

I appreciate the comments Marilyn. This is a very soothing image for me to look at. I believe it gives me a feeling which is very close to how I felt while making the image. Regards, Tom

Fantastic shot, Tom. I imagine these creatures clinging to the branches, making themselves comfortable, exchanging a few words with each other until the darkness falls.

Greetings, Inessa

Tom on January 18, 2008

They sure do exchange a few words Inessa. They make alot of noise actually, nothing like the serenity of this image. Thanks for the comments and visit. Tom

Another cracker, Tom :) I can almost see some inspirational words written in a delicate font below that moon!

Tom on February 19, 2008

Great idea highton-ridley. I will see if I can come up with some words worthy enough. Regards, Tom
