Birdstorm

The ghost of Alfred Hitchcock must’ve been passing through the morning of Dec. 6. The noise of this many birds swirling from tree to tree is hard to describe, and while it wasn’t deafening, it was somewhat unnerving. The birdstorm came and went in just a few minutes.

Thousands of birds in branches.
RISING — Almost as one, this raucous flock of thousands of birds lit in a row of trees, then lifted away.
Sky filled with birds.
SWEEPING THROUGH — Thousands of birds swirled around the house before heading west.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Home

This week’s photo challenge is “home.” A real challenge for a concept that means something different to everyone.

What is home?  A place for the heart? Soul? Refuge?
Our home is all of these things.

We do have to share one lovely image of home we saw yesterday at the Home and Garden, Seminar and Show in Pine Bluff, Ark. A youthful artist put her thoughts on paper.
