Congratulations Mike, Are the birds waiting for food from someone of good will?

I looked at the photos on flickr and they are more beautiful, they make more especially the details.

Good Shots, Mario

Thank You !

Those birds were everywhere, popping out of holes when least expected! The light was so flat that day, I think the monochrome worked well.


Hang up and DRIVE!

The detail is great and the shot borders on abstract

Generally the animals are much more instinctive and direct than we are and they have understood that sooner or later they will pour food from the ship, so they wait with a lot of patience.
We instead go to the market or if possible to the restaurant.

The photo is very good in B/W, even in color could have been converted with all the shades of gray, but with more effort, it also seems that there is almost no clear separation with the sky.

Nice shot. Looks abstractly architectural.

I'm not sure of where it should be.

The birds add to reality of life ........Otherwise it was silent

Man, this is one of the best photographs that I've seen in some time. A marvelous composition, and the B&W conversion is top notch - perfect for the subject.

The birds - along with a complete absence of humans - is perfect. Alfred Hitchcock would love it!!
