Love is in the air.....


One of the worst things about above ground electricity poles is that they're an eyesore on an otherwise pleasant streetscape..the good thing about above ground electricity poles is that they make a convenient resting spot after a long flight. We're in for some stormy weather in Perth over the next week and apart from the 'loved-up' couple atop the pole (it's not very clear but if you pull the two below images in a bit you can see there's a bit of a crush going on up there) and their entourage, the rest of the flock were a little 'twitchy'. I think if the weather is going to be as bad as they say, I might do some serious snuggling myself!! I'm off to see a French movie today, 'Cafe de Flore' with a title like that you just know it's going to be fantastique oui! Have a fab Friday, stay safe.....

  3. Every bird gathering other than pigeons put a smile on my face, especially when birds are as beautiful as these.

  4. Not what I was expecting from your title ... and while I must agree about the eyesore part, I do have several of my own bird-on-a-wire photos.

  7. Café de Flore? I know where it is and have been there but I did not know there was a movie... please let us know what you think.

    Love the white birds and your first photo is my favorite. They look like parakeets or parrots?

  8. Birds like this make me think of notes of music on a partition!
    Café de Flore, a movie about Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, I guess?...

  13. We don't see those kinds of birds here but in South Florida there are a ton of little green parrots flying about! Cute shots!

    Please give us a review of the movie after you've seen it. OK?

  23. You lucky woman having such birds around. That sky looks just like ours!

  24. I think all electricity cables should be underground. PS. Enjoy the movie.

  25. we started the day here with a very loud aggressive thunder storm .. keeping digits crossed this passes and we have sun for the weekend ... love those birds .. see, those annoying poles and wires can still make a good photo op

  26. It is as if the feathered ones like to be wired literally and mentally! Amazing how much socialising "catch up" is done on telegraph wires! It also seems to be a cautious "get to know you" place for different species of birds!

  27. I love how those two birds are totally oblivious to what's going on around them. A little love story unfolding through your lens, Grace!

  28. Great shot but how will they know if the electric feeling when cuddling is love or just a power surge?

  29. It's funny... we live in a new development and the electrical wires are all buried. It took me a while to realize this - the electrical wires overhead are such a part of our landscape. Wouldn't it be lovely to have them all gone?
