Camera Critters-Blackbird


"O Blackbird! sing me something well: While all the neighbors shoot thee round, I keep smooth plats of fruitful ground, Where thou may'st warble, eat and dwell."
Lord Alfred Tennyson

  1. I guess it's playing "king of the mountain." I bet it doesn't miss seeing anything up there!

  11. Nice shot! I'll be posting a blackbird, too, next week. I kept thinking of the Beatles song, "Blackbird." I like your more literary choice.

  14. I like the balance of the black bird above the black pole in your photo. The blue of the sky is an intense background.

  15. Cute but these little guys are pests. They follow me around the golf course and laugh - "Haw, haw, haw!" I'd like to see one of them play golf!

    Re your comment on Cedar Key: I think you would enjoy Cedar Key but it's very laid back and there isn't a lot to do other than walk the streets and shops and visit the restaurants. Fishing is big. You could go boating or kayaking. Visit the museum. Ride bike. Ride motor scooter. Take lots of photos. You could use Cedar Key as a base to visit other places in central and north Florida, though.
