This week’s challenge is Graceful. I have chosen as my subject for interpreting the theme these kestrels in flight.
These sparrows I spotted while waiting for a bus at Liberty Square in Tbilisi.
I had to crouch down to get this shot so they would be silhouetted against a grey sky and not a messy background of buildings.
…and here a single sparrow isolated by cropping from his friends on Twitter 😉
I often promote my blog, posting on Twitter. I don’t tweet much, I find the character limitation limiting.
I think this should be shared on Twitter.
“One swallow doesn’t make a summer” but as its August and day time temperatures regularly hit
40°C, I think it is definitely summer. Yesterday our windows were wide open and I heard a lot of twittering outside, on investigating I found four swallows on our laundry pole.
I love watching the swallows fly around but it also makes me sad, as I remember watching swallows with my late ex-wife one September in the French lake district.
One swallow family are nesting on the third floor of our apartment block.
Capturing them in flight is more tricky, as they move so quickly.
The swallow has a high slightly mechanic “t-weet” and a twittering song uttered on the wing or on a vantage point like our laundry pole.
Swallows make me sad. I love watching them but when I see them I remember watching them in France with my late first wife. Here in Tbilisi there are abundant swallows in the summer, we even have a couple nesting in our block.

This is just amazing:
