Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #25: Birds

"I hope you love birds too. It's economical. It saves going to heaven."

-Emily Dickinson


Flying BIRDS. Nesting BIRDS. Gooney BIRDS. Looney BIRDS. Real BIRDS. Stuffed BIRDS, both the toy and the sustenance. BIRDS with winter plumage, BIRDS taking a bath. BIRDS and their babies. BIRDS all alone. BIRDS in their houses. Red BIRDS. Black BIRDS. Bald BIRDS. BIRDS on a wire. Real BIRDS. Fake BIRDS. BIRDS.

Extra Credit: My favorite bird is the Snowy Egret, like the one you see above. I would like to see either an Egret or a Heron, but if you don't happen to have them in your area, any white BIRD will do as well. :)

You have until next Sunday evening, at 9:00 PM ET to get your photo, post it to your blog or journal, and comeback here with the link. Please remember, it must be a direct link to the entry in your blog or journal which is specific to this Monday Photo Shoot assignment. NO HYPERLINKS. Also, please link back here so others will be able to find the assignment and join us. If this is your first time playing be sure to say so when you leave your link, so I can welcome you properly next week!
