Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is:  Motion.
Our instructions:  This week, share your photographs that have captured motion, and tell us the stories behind the images.

The story?  There’s really not much of a story here.  I have a bird feeder set up outside my sunroom window.  My grandfather always loved birdwatching, and I inherited his hobby.  I love to watch the birds — they amuse me to no end.  I leave my camera tripod set up in my sunroom (it’s become a permanent decorating feature) so I can try to capture bird moments when they happen.

I took this shot one morning in the dead of January.  When I looked at the image in Lightroom, it cracked me up.  The motion is frozen.  He’s got his seed and takes off, but . . .

I feel like I’m forgetting something.  Oh, yeah.  Wings!!
