My World Tuesday

Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy and Louise for hosting My World. You can visit this wonderful meme by clicking on their icon below.


I thought I would combine my love of bird life for this week's entry as it is indeed very much a part of 'my world'. You will often find me peering through my curtains with my camera at the ready when birds are at the feeders. Lately I have been giving them speech, and as I have this particular 'problem', the two subjects seemed to go hand in hand. I always have to be fast as these pretty birds don't stay around for long.





The idea for this post was borrowed from that lovely line,

"I don't have a short attention span, oh look a kitty!"

"A fellow with the inventiveness of Albert Einstein but with the attention span of Daffy Duck."

  1. Comparing Einstein with the attention of Daffy Duck, may mean that a short attention span is not necessarily related to low intelligence, as we are generally inclined to do - haha
    Good shots of the birdie!

  8. I have to know what bird that is as it's another one I will not find on my bird table. They are just like your cartoon strip, easily distracted. Really cute.
