woodpigeons
run across the playing fields -
chased by a rabbit.

How funny! They must have known it wasn't worth getting airborne as the rabbit wouldn't do them any harm?

Did you know you got a Blog of Note thing? I did too, that may be why you might find you're getting extra helpings of spam!

Oh yes, nice to see the photo of you here.

I love the idea of rabits startling something :)

this is my patch said...

I've a pair of woodpigeons visiting my garden at the moment. They really are such funny birds, the trouble they go to, to manoeuvre themselves onto the birdtable! x

My favourite mammal and one of my favourite birds together in one haiku!

this is my patch, it sometimes seems to me that big fat clumsy woodpigeons think they are agile little tits, especially where elderberries are concerned …

A simple, yet charming image. I like both of those creatures, so it made me smile.
