A hand in the bush is worth … no, wait …

. . . zero birds in the hand is worth eight in the bush.

That’s right, mes chers lecteurs; there be eight identifiable birds in that bush. Meaning, you can definitively recognize them as birds (having recognizable bird characteristics).

Now, you have to be a bit careful because the milkweed seed pods, tend to have bird-like shapes depending on their orientation, but they don’t have legs, beaks, tails, or feather markings.

Once you find them, you can easily spot them even in the small photo above, but I suggest clicking on the above photo. A larger version will open in a new window or tab.

That might be enough for some, but I suspect most will need to see a version at full resolution.

Normally, I’d upload the full-size version, but I’m nearing my allotted storage space for my WP plan, so I’m linking the version in SmugMug (HERE). You can click on it to zoom in and out, and move around once zoomed in.

Let me add a few more photos to make this a bit more worthwhile for both of us. And these are P900 photos. I’m trying to use the P900 more often in preparation for possibly selling it and upgrading to the P950 … or deciding to keep it.

The first photo is of three Starlings<<link catching the last rays of a setting sun . . . This is at full zoom and these birds were atop a tree that’s about 50 yards away (add a bit more distance for the elevation).

The full-size version of the photo is in the same gallery as the first photo (the gallery is linked above).

Some readers might be wondering what happened to the sweet potatoes that looked very much like offal from a successful surgery . . . well, I put them out thinking some animals might find them appetizing, but, after a week, they’re still where I put them. We’ll see how long they last.

One more photo . . . these are seeds from one of the ornamental grasses in my backyard. The seeds are also catching the last rays of the sun, and I thought the effect was neat, especially with the holly tree as a backdrop.

The full-size versions of those are in this dedicated P900 gallery (LINK).

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
