Moonlighting

As we stepped out to take Charleston (our GSD)  for his evening walk, I looked up to see the moon. Charleston had to wait while we both ran in for our cameras. We spent a couple of minutes shooting from the front step before we resumed the walk. I think the delay was worth it but I am not sure Charleston would agree.

Wagtail Sibling Rivalry 1

This photo was taken by my husband. The adult wagtail is the one we hand-reared. This weekend she and her mate proudly presented us with four healthy fledglings. She brought them in, gave them the grand tour of the garden, introduced then to Charleston (our GSD) and even showed them inside the house as though she was showing them where she had grown up. It was lovely to see them and a wonderful photo opportunity too. More photos of the brood can be seen on Dadbabes’ blog, and I will soon be adding photos of my own to this site.

Wagtail Sibling Rivalry 1

The significance of this sequence is that the mother of this brood of four was hand-reared by my wife and then presented her with four healthy young who feed (with her mate) in the same back garden she was raised in just a few months after she was mature enough to fly off on her own. This presented some serious photo opportunities.
