    Oh, how fun and funny! I try my best to get a photo of the “paparazzi” anytime there’s a family/friend event and I see bunches of cameras all vying for the same shot. We humans are a funny bunch. Love how the birders…..become the birds. That’s certainly one way to become a better birder! ha. Have a great week.

      Thanks, Linda! It was fun “finding” a poem that turned the tables to make the watchers become the watched 😉
