Yesterday Art was treated to a little interaction with some playful birds who have chosen our cul de sac as their nightly hunting grounds.  At first the birds, whom I've not been able to identify yet, were chasing insects in the evening sky, but they quickly changed their target when Art climbed up on the truck. There were approximately 10 birds doing fly bys, coming very close, but never in a threatening manner.  This picture is actually a compilation of 4 shots taken a few seconds apart.  Close up shots of the birds were out of the question, they were just too fast for me.

I absolutely love the feel of this photo.  It evokes emotion the way the hair is whisping in the slight breeze.  The birds give it motion and the reduction to two basic colors by exposure gives it simplicity.  This is a wonderful picture!
