2021 starlings and other stories


The Best Photo of The Week - starling's feeding

This is my entry for THE BEST PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Birds feeding! This is my new hobby. Well, I work just as an assistant, my babygirl is the boss, she is doing the main job, I just refill food supplies, and carry the bag... with camera and telephoto lens. No kidding! Seriously, recently it was my job almost on a weekly basis. Took a load of photos. . .

Pigeons is my baby's first and top, absolute passion, then come the sparrows and ducks. And recently there showed up a seagull that visit us exactly at home. Fantastic!

So, we often grab a wheat bread, a packet of millet groats (or pearl barley) and head to the local park, where we have a pond with ducks. And there are crowds of other visitors, as well...

I stumbled upon a nice scene - a small club of pigeons decided to take a bath. Luckily, I witnessed the scene and took a dozen of funny captures. This was just of them.

Pigeons have a sharp eye when it concerns a food giveaway for free. They come momentarily in huge packs, theres a rivalry, some of them prefer even to walk over other folks heads and backs, to rush closer to the food.

Frankly speaking, I dont like pigeons. But I am not in charge here... (I am only in charge of the camera, tise).

I have witnessed a splendid scene of feeding, though one naughty pigeon rushed in and tried to spoil my captures. But I've got still enough to illustrate a decent post -- I definitely will tell you this photo story in a separate post. It is worth it.

Ok, thanks for the visit, and next time!

Мені надзвичайно прикро, що тут немає справедливого оцінювання. Можливо ви знаєте, чи є системний аккаунт, а можливо чат, де можна висловлювати свої запитання до @steemcurators?

the only place I know, is @steemitblog...
but expressing his / its name should work too,-- sometimes he / it react back and talk. as far as I noticed a few times here and there, in comments section
