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.
Two pairs of spread wings. Two American White Pelicans gliding between Little Quill Lake and Middle Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Wings spread for take off. A Black-capped Chickadee on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.
Tail spread, trying to impress a female in the spring. A male Yellow-headed Blackbird displaying near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada.

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.
A Black-capped Chickadee.
A Red-breasted Nuthatch
