A poem of John Lillison, England's Greatest One-Armed Poet, as read by Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr:

O pointy birds, o pointy pointy,
Anoint my head, anointy-nointy.



To help us move on I present

Within my Garden, rides a Bird
-------------------------------
Within my Garden, rides a Bird
Upon a single Wheel --
Whose spokes a dizzy Music make
As 'twere a travelling Mill --

He never stops, but slackens
Above the Ripest Rose --
Partakes without alighting
And praises as he goes,

Till every spice is tasted --
And then his Fairy Gig
Reels in remoter atmospheres --
And I rejoin my Dog,

And He and I, perplex us,
If positive, 'twere we --
Or bore the Garden in the Brain
This Curiosity --

But He, the best Logician,
Refers my clumsy eye --
To just vibrating Blossoms!
An Exquisite Reply!
- Emily Dickinson


Shock!
I got a new life
You would hardly recognize me
Im so glad
How can a person like me care for you
Why do I bother
When youre not the one for me
Is enough enough
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
No ones gonna drag you up
To get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong
Under the pale moon
For so many years Ive wondered
Who you are
How can a person like you bring me joy
Under the pale moon
Where I see a lot of stars
Is enough enough
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
No ones gonna drag you up
To get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong
I saw the sign and it opened up my mind
And I am happy now
Living without you
Ive left you all alone
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
No ones gonna drag you up
To get into the light where you belong
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign

Nice. I like how you have no background and the light coming through the wings looks great too.

No backgroud composition. Just the subject is a bit borring imho.

This is gorgeous, but it's missing something, I think that it is the position of the bird in the frame, and the background colour its a little too pink. But the capture is perfect.

Very nice! This is impressive! The wing is spectacular! I'm not crazy about the pink background color though.

I've shot these guys before, and know how difficult they can be to catch. Nice job.
