Nature Photography

As Helen walked several yards behind her husband on the picturesque boardwalk, she said, “Honey? What’s that bird you’re looking for?”

The avid bird-photographer kept his eye firmly rooted to the camera viewfinder. “It’s the Royal Evastus Heron, darling.”

“About 4-feet tall, sharp bill, and a purplish head?”

“Yes, darling,” he said absently, scanning the marsh.”

Helen smirked. “Pecks at anything colored red?”

“Yes. Now, please don’t distract me. I positively MUST have a picture of this bird.”

Helen aimed her camera. A shot of this Heron standing beside him, and pecking his arse through his red shorts, would be brilliant!

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
