Keeping the Chicks Alive

Keeping the Chicks Alive

2 chicks are fed by a parent just outside the window of my home office here in Blarney.

The chicks have been there all evening and I just looked out again and they’re still there. Unfortunately the neighbour’s cat, Patches, saw them too and is keeping a vigil close by. We saw the parent bird literally dive bomb the cat several times but Patches won’t be moved.

A moment before this shot was taken the first chick was fed. I have a photo of that too but I thought this was the better one.

Is it common for young birds to huddle together on a wire in the shelter of a house? It troubles me that they might be in danger or injured and can’t fly away. Anyone know?

The Flowers of Fuchsia

Flowers of Fuchsia

Fuchsia flowers in my dad’s back garden.

I’ve tried to photograph fuchsia plants many times but the flowers are so delicate that any sort of breeze will set them shaking. I took this photo with the Canon 50mm resulting in a very fast shot and thankfully the lack of wind helped too!

(Posting this so “early” in the day because I’m debugging a supercache bug, must revert that “not logged in” message.)
