Birds in My Backyard


When stopping by a paddy field after a long holiday break at Kangar, I am so glad to meet some of my feathered friends this morning. Re-positioning myself instinctively,  I then aim,  shoot, check and confirm, and these are repeated until either the birds leave or my satisfaction reaches a level of 10. 


Each of my move is well written, yet you can choose not to agree with. Somehow, I whom people called "young man" have become an "uncle" in the eyes of some uncles recently. You may let out a loud guffaw, only because this is what you are intended to be.

Learning and evolution always take place. You can take over control by outrunning the super computer. Two, three guffaws or whatever number will be solely your decision thereafter. 

What if you are smarter and evolve further? You can do a lot more, and will be no more a figment of a computer generated soap-opera. Congratulation.


You can then choose not to guffaw at all.

I can relate, for more then a few years now people calling me uncle !

George said...

I suspect that your feathered friends were as happy to see you again as you were to see them. I wonder if their satisfaction level reached 10?

I am trying to find birds too. I hope mine will be as lovely as your birds. I am called uncle now too for a long time. Time went by so fast from when it was always others who I called uncle.

I seem to have slowed down on the picture taking these days. Yesterday, when I went to the village market, I forgot my camera and I was most disappointed since there were several great photo possibilities.

betchai said...

oh, i am the same with taking pictures, i repeat them until birds leave me or I am satisfied or my hand is very tired from holding the camera :)

betchai said...

well, unlike Cher, I don't think I have been a first commenter here yet, maybe next time :)

Perhaps the birds also call you uncle because you are a constant visitor

Bardzo lubię robić zdjęcia ptaków, chociaż to nie łatwe. Trzeba szczęścia i cierpliwości. Lubię Twoje ptaszki za oknem. Treści nie komentuję, bo trochę dziwne jest tłumaczenie Google i mój komentarz mógłby być śmieszny. Pozdrawiam. *** I really like taking pictures of birds, although it is not easy. You have luck and patience. I like your birds outside the window. Not comment on the content, because translation is a little weird Google and my comment would be funny. Yours.

Welcome to the 'uncle' league...:)

Hello Rainfield, taking photos of birds is hard, my birds usually leave way before I am satisfied. And I always worry about harassing the birds so I try to be as quick as I can. So, I would never reach a level of 10. LOL!!!!I have been called an Aunt for more years than I like to claim. Great photos and pretty birds. Have a wonderful weekend.

It's about time you come back to cyberspace, because I was about to send out some viruses to hi-jack you back :-)

Now, congrats on being an uncle!

Interesting birds, level 10! Looks like the first one wears the colors of the palm tree on its back and the second one wears a mask.

Ginnymo said...

You have very pretty little birds there rain. Nice change from the bugs..Ha! Ha!

Ruthi said...

winter here is milder compared last year so i get a chance to watch the birds and chippies in my backyard too.

Reena Walkling said...

Great photos and enjoyed your bird. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Wow the bird has got 'ching kung' balancing on a thin stalk. Upgraded in your status to 'Uncle' shows your wisdom.

Amin said...

Amin said...

Always striving for the 10, but I'm not sure it exists. :)

I often wonder how much is enough when my fingers kept on clicking!

I like the second photo, but first looks colorful!
