Haiku – Take Flight

Birds take flight above

Clouds transition, grey to pink

Slowly day subsides

Sunset over east austin October 2013

Lovely picture and very appropriate for this time of year.

We often see lots of birds migrating over the last month or so. Every year our house seems to be on the flight path of the geese and they make a lot of noise when they travel!

Birds in flight are wonderful. Filled with envy now.

Beautiful! I am so drawn to birds and to flight! It looks as though we share a source of inspiration!

Birds in flight are mesmerizing. I’m so envious of them – they make it look so easy!

I believe they can stand independently of each other (photo/text) but make a great combo.

I have a great time making them… maybe I’ll post some of the ones I created about my coworkers – those are “special” laugh

You know this post turned out to be a happy accident. While photographing the sunset, that flock swooped in.
Then when posting, I didn’t even consider the whole winter angle – it’s still humid, 80 degrees and all the trees are still green here.

Beautiful photo, Maria, and I sighed as it made me think of the proverbial birds flying south for the winter. As the weather is changing the bright colors always help to keep the faith that warm weather will return. Well, in 4-5 months 🙂

I was in the right place at the right time to get the birds in flight.
Living in a place that is far too hot for far too long, I rarely think of the winter migration – just enjoy watching them swoop and dive.
Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

I love that cotton candy sky! I’ll pretend the birds are heading somewhere warm (Key West?!) for the coming months…while we sit here and shiver;-)

I love watching birds in the morning on my way to school. I was never able to take such a good photo as you did though. Lovely!

They’re amazing acrobats and I envy them. They make it seem effortless. This shot came out well but I took 6 or 7 in succession and I used my phone = pure luck! Keep trying, you’ll get a good one. 😀

Love spotting huge flocks like that and keeping my eyes on them for as long as possible. The cohesiveness never fails to fascinate me.

Since my pocket camera is having issues, I’m exclusively using the Galaxy 3 , which takes better photos than the point and shoot. From what I gather, the biggest improvement from the 3 to 4 is the camera (and video). Either will have to work for the time being until ‘real cameras’ are acquired

If the flocks are you’re thing you gotta stop by some day – this happens every afternoon and I gotta say, it truly is an uplifting sight on my walk home from work.

Sounds like we’re birds of a feather where the “camera” is concerned.
