Cosmic Photo Challenge: Look Up

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Look Up.

The first thing that came to mind when I read the prompt was the various bird species I have photographed in the yard as they look up, making sure that there isn’t a predatory species about.

Thanks Susan. To quote The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy they’re mostly harmless. They’re regarded as a nocturnal species but as we’re in a tourist area I suspect some are getting into the habit of looking for handouts during the day.

My sweetheart sometimes gets a racoon visitor in his garden during the night, but I’ve never seen one. His old dog used to know if one was there.

Some people get a bit paranoid thinking any about during the day must be rabid but I think that the ones around here are just used to being around people. Some of the tourists don’t pay attention to the guidelines for being in a Black Bear area and leave food and scraps lying around.

The last two years they had to put warning signs up at parks and caravan parks because of the tourists leaving food and scraps lying around but they continued doing it. Then they get upset when a bear wanders out of the bush.
