Four-and-Twenty Blackbirds

This iPhone photo snapped from my third floor window doesn't even begin to show the number of blackbirds flying into the woods. What a sight to behold at my cottage this afternoon. Blackbird pie is not on tonight's menu.

This happy family appears to be thrilled to see such a pie on their dinner table. Here is another Randolph Caldecott drawing from one of my antiquarian books illustrating the nursery rhyme Sing A Song for Sixpence.

The shot of the blackbirds remind me of a scene from Cold Mountain when Emmett comes back. Beautiful shot!

Your photography with your iPhone is really great. The birds are a little scary...Hitchcock like. :-)
