It's been raining on and off all day, and I was pretty stumped on what to photograph with 13 subjects without setting up 13 marbles, matches etc. Mind you, I was tempted to redo this with ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1259/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_905184.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1259/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_905184.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Most of my entries lately have birds so I was hesitant to shoot this. I took a few shots of my kids feeding and chasing birds before the rain returned and only one that could be suitably cropped to show only 13 birds. It wasn't my favorite but I do like it.

I guess the main problem is that even though I took these for the challenge it has come off as a snap shot and will probably be punished in the voting. There's nothing artistic or clever so a score in the low 5's would be justifiable.
