#049-365 Chores




When one is a parent there are certain chores that you just have to do yourself and shopping is one of them. Here is a shot of a hen-pecked husband out cruising the Super Market of life, when he notices a couple of young Supermarket Attendants (Sally's Grandson and friends) deposit a tasty morsel on the smorgasbord (Jetty) so he just swoops down and scoops it up before some ne'er-do-well Crow or pelican can gobble it up. In the final shot you can see him carting it home (Across the River) and I bet he is just thinking to himself "Can't wait to be an Empty Nester" "So that I can wing it for a while"!

Fine shots of an impressive bird, the kids must have been thrilled. A small quibble- your nice border eats into the wings of the shot on the jetty. What is that bird any way?

A man's work is never done....LOL Fun interpretation of the theme, however, I am sure that is really how you do your chores! I knew you had powers to turn into that bird!

Wonderful timing on capturing that swoop shot! Hope everyone clicks on it, to see it in it's larger size!

Are you sure that's not the mother out shopping to feed her young? That's usually the way it goes. Good action shots.
