SWF - All Alone and Feeling Blue - Post 49


A lonely little bird at twilight. He or she had been singing, which is what caught my attention, but its singing was in vain, as it remained alone for as long as I watched.
Sky Watch was created by Dot (visit her lovely blog here). The new Sky Watch is hosted by Tom, Imac, Sandy, and Klaus. I invite you to visit the new site to see sky photographs from around the world. Links will start posting at 7:30 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time (England) on Thursday, July 31, for participants on this side of the International Date Line.

What a sad little story you weave. Lovely image though. Such a tortured branch for him to sit on. It fits the mood perfectly.

He might have been singing to let other birds know it is his territory.

Very nice picture. Great impact with just two colours. The blue of the sky and tree and bird just shades of dark. Great.
