Through the Lens Week 42

'So the darkness shall be the light and the stillness the dancing.'
~ T.S. Eliot





We are sharing this week with:

Our World Tuesday, Black and White Wednesday, Alphabe Thursday, Little Things Thursday and Haiku My Heart, Haiku Friday.



'Birds of a feather' flocking to feeder in our world on Cape Ann MA





Black and White shot of Birds 'dining' on Cape Ann MA





J ~ for January ~ Bird life on Cape Ann MA 






She knows this is a different camera ~ hence the 'quizzical' look, I think.




Haiku thoughts on Winter on Cape Ann MA





Seems to be a 'bird' week this week. It is not my usual type of
photography but hope you have enjoyed it.


Wishing you the best in each day. xoxoxo


Your posted comments are delighting us as always, thanks!

  5. Well, at least the birds are sharing the food, right? Do you think Artmuse is really wondering about the camera, or looking for maybe a little treat? So cute.

  10. I'm not a bird photographer, either, but I like to watch them in the garden - if there are any. You seem to have some nice species there.

    And I wanted to say it but always forgot: your dog is really cute! Have a nice day!

  36. Darkness can't fade fast enough for some people, although I rather enjoy the short days and long nights, because they encourage me to slow down.
