Feed the birds, tuppence a bag. Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag...

Great photo! Hopefully she IS feeding them, and they're not just attacking her!

This is great, but it also freaks me out a little. Please tell me she is feeding them and that is why they are all over her? PLEASE :O)

So much for a "Bird's Eye View", hahaha... ; )

Yes, she's feeding them. I think she was giving them the remains of her sandwich. Also, my sense was that this is something she did regularly. I also had a couple land on me looking for a hand out. Even though they were not bashful, they also didn't seem aggressive. They would just land and look.

I remember growing up and working in the downtown area of my hometown all the pigeons that would gather and the retail employees would walk out to the main plaza and feed them. It was outlawed after a while because of the fear of spreading disease, but I always wondered who would feed them? This is a great pic of bird love :O) Hope you are having good travels. Be Safe!

All is well, Carol...so far so good. I'm wanna go home however. Today was my last shoot. Now I'm done...whipped...and can't wait to get home. I like traveling and love my job, but I love being home even more. Thanks for hanging in there with me. It's nice to have contact with folks while I'm gone.

Well I thought of you today when I saw a cool plane landing Barstow airport. Another example of having a camera with me at all times - NOT! It would have been so cool! Someday I will learn Dan, someday. Christmas shopping makes me lose brain cells. I had the same effect after childbirth, hehehe. Glad to hear the trip went well. I am sure your family will be happy to have you home and safe. I will start prayers for your seatmate now, LOL!

You've got a good memory, Carol. And I've got the window seat for a 10 hr flight!

\o/ Yay!
