AN UNSUCCESSFUL HORNBILL MORNING

In one of a number of unsuccessful hornbill mornings, their penetrating cries could be heard everywhere from inside the house yet I looked in the usual vantage points around the balcony and found none. There is however no shortage of birds that pay homage to this neighbourhood and just as I was about to head inside, I thought the antenna that stands high above the roof could be worth a look. Not an easy thing as it involves jutting out the body somewhat and then at my age requiring a little gymnastic bending in order to take a peep. A gymnast doesn’t have to hold several kilos of weight while this one tried rather awkwardly to hold the 100-400mm for this shot. The birds, being naturally alert, were busy looking every which way but down. I thought this picture made for an interesting perspective save for the shadow of the roof on the lower left corner.

Except for this little one that looked back. Helluu there! πŸ™‚
