One of the things I was looking forward to doing in September (here's the complete list) was taking photos of birds sitting together on a wire and I finally got my chance.
Over the past few weeks, as I was driving to and from work, I often noticed large flocks of birds sitting cozily on a wire or swirling overhead. It would drive me crazy because there I would be in the car admiring the birds while my camera was sitting at home. I finally got smart and started taking my camera with me every day just in case. I was rewarded this week, when I stopped at a red light, to see these birds sitting together on a wire. I quickly snapped some photos while the light was red and was smiling all the way to work. Of course, I played around with the photos a bit on Picnik as well.
I'm often extolling the benefits of using Picnik, an on-line photo-editing program, on your photos (see here and here), so I thought I would throw in one photo to show the before-and-after shots.
If you see a crazy woman at a stop light rubbernecking at the birds and snapping photos, please just smile and wave at me!
