Full Moon And Interested Onlookers
Yesterday in the morning we had a full moon on view. As did everyone else in the world so I guess that that's not really newsworthy. I thought that it would be nice to take a photo of it behind the pump house near work after I got off the bus. So I went to the parkland and knelt down to take a few shots. It was then that I noticed a reflection on the viewfinder and thought that somebody must be going for a walk and may walk in front of the camera. "Strange," I thought to myself, "I didn't see anybody in the park when I was preparing to take the photos. Put the camera down and saw that it was three magpies who were quite interested in what was going on. Or perhaps they just expected me to feed them. Odd, as magpies aren't generally the friendliest of birds.
