Resting on the quayside (theme)

by Helen Hooker June. 22, 2011 4836 views

I knew I was always going to struggle to catch a shot for today??s harbour theme but somehow I managed to find ten minutes to stop off in Emsworth as I travelled between schools this afternoon. While this part of Emsworth perhaps doesn??t quite class as a harbour it does have a quay surrounding an area of salt water so I figured that was close enough! As I drove along the narrow quayside road there were lots of ducks, swans and terns dozing peacefully (one or two of them doing so right in the middle of the road!) so I grabbed my 70-200mm lens and managed to get just close enough to take some photos of them without disturbing their post-lunch siesta.

I wonder what she's saying to me?!

“I wish you'd let me tidy my feathers up before you started shooting!”

Fabulous Helen! I think she's saying, "Surely you are going to pay me for posing. Where are my treats?"

Lovely birds....a nice take on the harbor theme. No harbors anyplace around here, so I'm out of the theme this week ;)) #3 makes me smile :)))
