Tuesday Photo Challenge

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Spread

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Spread.

When I read the prompt I thought of wide angle landscapes that take in a spread of view wider than the human eye can see without moving. I had actually started editing photos for the post before thinking of birds with spread wings.

Spreading its wings. A Great Crested Grebe stretching its wings on Hurleston Reservoir near Nantwich, Cheshire, England and the photo I thought of that caused me to rewrite this post.

On the Hunt for Joy: Jump for Joy

This is my contribution for week three of Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy: Jump for Joy photo challenge.

I was convinced that I had a photo of a Squirrel jumping but a quick search didn’t turn it up so I had to find an alternative.

Here’s a couple of birds in the process of jumping off the branches they’re on.
