Round Robin Photo Challenge: Cliche'


A bird in the hand equals two in the bush.

I'm glad to get to use the photos of the "real" birds. The quality isn't the greatest on either because I lose clarity when I zoom with my digital camera but I had to in order to not lose the birds in the bushes.

The second bird is a Hummingbird that I took at LACMA the last time I went. It blew my mind how long it sat there.  I've never seen one of those not in motion. The third bird was a whimsical little thing. I took that picture when I was at The Huntington. The flower stem is a long dangling kind and the bird landed on it and allowed it to bend with its weight. Then, it did a tightrope walk to the end where the flower was.

The first bird is obviously not a real bird, but I didn't think anyone wanted to see a picture of a dead chicken so I chose a figurine that I received years ago as a gift.

Hey, great interpretation!
your right, I enjoy the figurine much better :D

This cliche' for some reason, I always mess up when I try
and say it, lol.

I had thought of using that cliche - well, I thought of using many.  Seems once I got past the mental block they all started coming and I had all kinds of ideas. :-)  I enjoyed how you did this!

Cool! Oh yaay! These are the two birds I've been waiting to see. How udderly cool! (Yeah, I meant to say udder instead of utter because I'm in a weird mood today.)

Great interpretation of the cliche, Robbie.

Cool birds all! Humming birds are amazing. All that flying and they are so hard to spot resting. Great cliche!

Lovely ~ the little yellow guy looks like an Audubon print among all those pretty flowers.
