Friday 17 August 2012: Bluey
First time I've managed to take a shot of the Birdfeeders with the window open.
Got distracted, was supposed to be packing for a trip but was pleased to discover how much activity the feeders are generating.
The Bluetits dart about with such speed, they're almost invisible. Scouting around to see if the coast is clear, they often grab onto a wall or tuck in to corners.
Am becoming more fine tuned to their movements and spotting where their lookout posts are.
So much can be seen just by entering a state of stillness.
Mid- afternoon and travel plans are up in the air - abandon packing and lose myself in this strangely beguiling world that unfolds on the rooftops.
Can't help watching the movements of the Bluetits without snippets of ideas for choreography working through my veins...such spritely precision, graceful acrobatics and an exquisite little bowing movement with leg extensions that are so balletic. Pure magic.
Instinctive grace holds much fascination...but practicalities need attention. Must rearrange trip!
Missing loved ones and need to get on a plane soon.
"Over the Hill" (goin home)
Hope your weekend is anything but Blue
