Uprooted Magnolia

Magpie in Flight

It’s overcast today, the sky is solid white and the air is crisp and cool. But this in no way reflects my mood this Monday. Uprooted Magnolia was Freshly Pressed on Friday and I have been overwhelmed with the many comments and likes on the post “Ready for her Close-up“. I am so thankful to WordPress for featuring me and am enjoying your comments and have replied to many of them. I’m glad you have cruised through and viewed my many other posts and photos as well. I’ve made so many friends this weekend on WordPress and look forward to getting the time to view your beautiful blogs.

This Magpie took flight as I was stepping out of the front door this morning. Good thing I was ready.

    Exciting weekend huh? (: So well deserved.

    p.s. I got home far after midnight and could NOT figure out what the stats jump could have been about… what a fun (and exciting!) discovery. You rock.

    I so miss the magpies here! Over the last few years they have just disappeared. Beautiful shot!

      Oh, that stinks! I wonder why that is. Glad I can bring one to you at least in a photo. I just love their long tail feathers.

      Thanks Lenore! I had to act fast and I really love the Magpies out here. They are just very difficult to capture through the lens. I’m happy this one turned out so well.
