M is for Magpie

MThis year I’m participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge again. I thought it might be fun to share some of my photography instead of always my words. They say a picture is worth–well, you know what they say ๐Ÿ˜‰

I will try to keep these blog posts short and sweet, while still offering a little bit of insight into each photograph, just for fun.

M is for Magpie

Magpies are one of my favourite kinds of birds. Unfortunately, theyย  never seem to want to co operate when I try to take their pictures, so I don’t have nearly as many shots of them as I’d like. Here are the few I do have… even if a couple are a bit cheaty ๐Ÿ˜‰

This flouffy dude was hanging out on a tree by my back door. I had to shoot this through the window because I knew as soon as I opened the squeaky screen door he’d fly away. After I took this shot I tried to open the door to get a better one, but as I’d known he would, he flew away ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve seen this graffiti in a few places around Edmonton. This one was on the side of a dumpster outside the High Level Diner

According to its title, I took this one in October 2010. Seriously? How does time keep moving faster and faster?

Finally, I did not do this embroidery (alas), I only took a photo of it:
