Feathers On Friday: Nothing Goes To Waste

Danny and Daisy stopped by for a quick snack. They’ve obviously heard of our ‘Birdie Bistro’ and are happy that the smaller birds are such messy eaters, frequently knocking seeds out of the feeder onto the grass.

After eating their fill, they were soon off on their Friday meander around the neighbourhood.

Wishing you all plain sailing this weekend; calm and peaceful like Danny and Daisy.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Clouds

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge this week is ‘Clouds’.

Here are clouds hovering over the city of La Paz, the capital of of Bolivia. At an elevation of roughly 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level, La Paz is the highest capital city in the world. We’d just flown into El Alto airport which is even higher, at an altitude of 13,323′ and I was definitely feeling the effects.

The clouds around the lighthouse in my old hometown of Umhlanga South Africa, where at sea level my body is happiest.

Here in Florida it’s pretty flat too. No wonder the clouds fall into the water at our local nature reserve.
