Two magpies

Two magpies flew in front of me as I ran on the streets this afternoon, providing a much-needed boost as my energy lagged. I called out to them, “Hello, magpies! I receive the gift of your beauty!”

Of course, I didn’t have a camera with me so here are two that visited my backyard almost exactly one year ago. The bird on the fence had just finished bathing and my photo session shows a continuous stream of magpies performing their ablutions.

I feel incredibly fortunate to see magpies on a daily basis. They’re stunning birds that never fail to bring a smile.

  1. I know that sometimes they can be a nuisance, but I still love Magpies for their quirky personalities. These pictures would work as “Nature at Rest” December’s photo submission. I’m particularly fond of the one at the bird bath. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
