Grackle Giving Me The Eye

The man who has no imagination has no wings.
~Muhammad Ali
About the image: This Grackle looks like he is doing "toe-touches". I often think of my bird friends (actually all of my animals friends) with human characteristics. Like this Cedar Waxwing reminded me of Audrey Hepburn - HERE. And this Red-bellied Woodpecker looked like he was doing Chin-ups - HERE
I'm not sure if it comes with age - or if it is due to my passion for photography - but I find that my imagination has developed more later in life than when I was younger. Do you find that you have a vivid imagination?

Love the expression on the bird's face. Since I started following bird blogs, I feel so much more appreciation for the creatures. As for imagination, I feel often that I had a richer imagination when I was younger. But now, I find myself getting into new interests like crafts and sewing that I never liked before. Thanks for the post:)

The iridescent blue is beautiful!

I don't know about my imagination being more vivid as I age but I do know that I appreciate everything in life so much more and don't take anything for granted like I did when I was younger. Maturity and aging do have their benefits!

Oh yes, I have a vivid imagination and even have conversations with my dogs and know what they would say if the could. My imagination soars!

Kerri, you are one of my favorite photgraphers in the blogger world. Great shots! I love the color tone of the feathers!

I love the way you think. I do think that I have gotten more free in my thoughts as I've gotten older. Love this picture of the grackle. My mother-in-law hated grackles and would do a "grackle dance" to scare them away from her bird feeders. I think they are kind of cool looking.

Hahah...wow. If my imagination is correct...I would be running from that bird right about now! I have a good imagination of what birds can do to me;)

In your eyes & through your lens, even a Grackle is magic. There is si much beauty in everyday things, if we inky stop & look.

He's probably wondering what you were doing looking at him. Great capture.
