Looking Up

#18 Looking Up

My sister-in-law once commented that if we don't look up, we miss an entire world of activity and experience.  She was of course talking about the fowl life.  The drama of birds flying, fighting, swooping and swirling often occurs above our heads and we have no clue anything is happening in the avian world.

My youngest daughter was fascinated with the birds which sit on wires, perching in groups.  One Sunday morning, she pointed them out and we decided that they were attending 'bird church'.  The term stuck and to this day we refer to those flocks as 'bird church'.

If you're not 'Looking Up', you are missing out!

The first link didn't go directly to the birds and tune. Try this one!

Look up and look back if you are a photographer. And...look down, too.
I like looking up the most!
