"Birds"

Early in the morning looking over my fence this is what I saw. It is almost like Alfred Hitchcock's movie. Click the icon and see all other Camera Critters.

Oh yeah...creepy! Great shot...that you made it grayscale makes it all the more effective. Well done!

dot said...

Reminds me of Hitchcock for sure. You better be careful when you are outside. SPOOOOOOOOOOKYYYYY! lol

That is a lot of birds! I imagine it would be a bit like Alfred Hitchcock's film!

Carletta said...

OMGosh!
Hitchcock was exactly what I thought when I opened your blog!
So ominous! I hated that movie. :)

Have to say this was a great capture though - glad you shared it in black and white -perfect.

I love the black and white shot. Yes it does feel like the movie

Tammy said...

It does look a littler eerie don't it. Very cool!

storyteller said...

Yup ... definitely a Hitchcock moment! Very weird … reminds me of something that happened to me a while back that I shared at Small Reflections here.
Hugs and blessings,

Carole said...

Wow! Having it in black and white increases the Hitchcockian effect.

Abraham Lincoln said...

Yes, it does look odd. Must be some heat or something coming up to keep them all perched like that. Nice shot.

I will put the Ohio Deer hunting story on my blog in the morning.

Are you sure you haven't put glue to the rooftiles? Or are the birds coming especially for you?

Cathy said...

It *is* a rather Hitchcockian shot. Reminds me of visiting a lighthouse in Washington state that had gulls lined up like that. I felt as though I were walking through the schoolyard in "The Birds".

Tootie said...

My, that's a LOT of birds. You have some beautiful photos on your site!

Coca Cutie said...

I have been looking for that lining up term - has something to do with colonizing ???

This is so really DUTCH , the sky and the birds, that reminds me of my youth in Scheveningen, there I saw also this seabirds, great shot!

Thanks for visiting my blog, I show more statues today, this time "FACE's" , you might like that too.

Greetings JoAnn's-D-Eyes

Ted Roth said...

Wonderful shot. I'm still giggling. I guess that's what birds do when they don't have trees? I'm waiting for corn harvesting season here. That's when the bird flocks grow to thousands and fly in "schools" from tree to tree by the corn fields.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

WOW! That is very cool! Love those birds, and the scene in BW is nice too! :-D Sort of spooky but at the same time calm.

Ackworth Born said...
