Thursday photo prompt – Ebb – #writephoto

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

#writephoto

Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt. If you know where the photo was taken, please keep the location to yourself until the prompt has closed.

Throughout the week I will feature a number of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows. Every week, a full round-up of posts will be published linking back to the original posts of contributors.

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up. Please visit and read the stories and poems and explore the sites of their writers. I feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week, but given the volume of contributions that may not be all of them!

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday…

In between those visits we hung around the village to soak in the remoteness of the place and to get an appreciation for what life is like in a spot that feels like it could be the ends of the earth.

On the northern…

Cedar Waxwings

Emily Carter Mitchell ~ Nature as Art

One of more favorite birds is the Cedar Waxwings. Usually only hearing their zee-zee-zee high in the treetops, they tend to visit my garden only in early spring.

This fall though I’ve heard a small group visit the garden now and again. These masked bandits keep their eyes on me when I’m outside and stay away until I go back inside. They just sit up there taunting me. I’ve played the waiting game with them, and they always win.

As with anything, good things come to those that await.

Yesterday a huge flock of over 50 Cedar Waxwings came and visited my garden all day. The main attraction? A bird bath and two water fountains that I have near the house. Smartly, a long time ago I had staged a nice branch in a pot filled with sand near the bird bath so that I could get some nice captures…
