Six freshly bathed starlings artfully arranged along the top of my garden fence, fresh from the splashing bird bath they glisten as they preen and dry, iridescent in the sunlight.

I love it when birds hang out in a row - I always imagine they're gossiping! :-) And a lovely summertime snapshot Susannah.

Susannah said...

Hi Jennifer, yes, I love it too. :-) We have a real assortment of birds outside the window today, varying sizes and shapes all singing away and helping themselves to seed and water now the bathers have gone!

Why Susannah that read like a is a poem
So good to have you post
I have missed you....or have I been missing them?
I love starlings...clowns of the garden!

Susannah said...

Starlings may be the hooligans of the garden but they have the most beautiful feathers.

A lovely image, Susannah. :-)

Susannah said...

Thanks Paul. :-)

Michaela said...

You haven't to be a starling for shining after a bath :-) your words remind me on my self or just on any swimmer. Because I started again with swimming. I loove it. After one hour swimming I leave the pool feeling weightless and ready to shake my whole body to get read of the water drops. And when I imagine this picture it makes me smile. Or maybe sometimes you want to be just a little bird.. :-)

Susannah said...

Hello Michaela, now every time I see a bird come out of my bird bath, I will imagine you shining!

Good to see you. :-)
