Ibes on a Street Light

Similar to this photo, and yet different, on account of the birds and the street light being different.

At what are they staring? I think it may have been me, but that accounts for one. The other looks like it’s looking elsewhere. I am not sure at what, but it surely is something.

This is my submission into the two hundred-and-twenty-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. The theme for this one is “Wildlife Close to Home“.

I like photos like these as they make me think about the impact of urban spread on wildlife.

The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:

Week 1 – Tina

Week 2 – Patti

Week 3 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 4 – Amy

Week 5 – John Steiner

Week 6 – Sofia Alves

Week 7 – Anne Sandler

Week 8 – Guest host

This one is curated by Anne. Jude of Cornwall in Colors guest curates the next one.

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re open enough to allow for a fair bit of thinking about approach and closed enough to keep focus on meeting the theme of each one. If you don’t participate, you should still check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

    ahh, yes, urban spread. My local community continues to build homes and businesses. I always feel saddened by the progress for the sake of wildlife. They are pushed to their limits, and then hit by cars, etc…

    I always wonder what wildlife might be thinking as well. Great ponder.
