Bird on a Wire ………


………. with a sunflower scarecrow.

A barbary falcon at a falconry show glances my shoulder, does a couple more circular fly-pasts, before landing on this unsuspecting sunflower-inspired flying scarecrow.

I had to whip out my camera fairly swiftly in order to try and capture such a surreal sight.

    1. Thank you, Adrian! Such a strange moment: a bird of prey sitting atop a stuffed sunflower scarecrow suspended in mid-air! It was also quite something having one of these marvellous creatures fly so close!


  1. Whole new connotation for the Lenard Cohen song. ” Like a bird on a wire,… I have tried in my way to be free” .
    Remarkable image & capture. very well done. πŸ™‚


  2. What a remarkable photograph. It could almost be something out of a comic book, with the bird’s line of flight drawn in and SuperScarecrow’s flight lines coming out of his feet! Thank you for posting it.


    1. Yes, I see what you mean regarding the line of flight in a comic book! It’s certainly one of the most surreal photos I’ve ever taken! I’m pleased you enjoyed it.
