Bird's Eye View

A little birdie creature was sitting in our landscaping not.moving.a.muscle. today and totally freaked me out. I asked David to hand me my camera as I stood waiting on the porch, fully prepared for the birdie to attack me. Irrational, maybe...but his lack of movement was intriguing and weirding me out at the same time! Since he stayed put, I was able to snap a couple pics of him from about 2 feet away. Aren't those eyes just a little bit creepy? I know you're thinking it!

I at one point asked David, "Could this bird be dead? I mean, can birds die standing up?" The bird really was that still...don't laugh. ; )

Finally after I changed my settings on my camera and the flash went off, he hopped away. David claims he saw the same freaky little bird in the backyard the other day and he wouldn't move then, either. Weird, huh?

LOL @ "can birds die standing up?"! Not that birds dying are funny, but that just cracked me up.

There's a weird bird in every bunch, the poor chubby little guy. I wonder if he's like one of those oil paintings where no matter where you stand, his eyes seem to follow you.

Creepy- looks like he's staring right at you like "what the heck is her problem?" LMAO! Too funny!

LOL! He looks so sad! Maybe broken wings?

That is odd! That type of bird must like to have its picture taken, apparently!

So smart to learn how to use your camera before a big trip!
