A little humor

I remember a day when my friend Rich Ditch posted an Avocet “butt shot” image on a critique gallery that we are both members of.  I had seen the thumbnail but wasn’t prepared for the laughter that would erupt from me when I viewed the larger image, I almost had coffee all over my keyboard!

It was so funny that it has inspired me to look for and take images of birds that make me laugh. Afterall, who doesn’t need a bit of humor once in awhile?

Some funny images seem to beg for funny captions. If you can think of any for the photo above or below, let me know!

Funny Black-bellied Plover

Looks to me like the Black-bellied Plover has taken lessons on how to do the “Funky Chicken”.

I’ll post more of these funny images here as I come across them in my files. It doesn’t hurt to share a little humor.


PS:  No birds were harmed while creating these photos.

    Thanks for the inspiration: I think I will add a new category on my blog.

    The avocet image you mention is on my web site: http://www.richditch.com/page2/page175/page30/files/page30-1003-full.html
