Two lovebirds resting
Spring nest building pauses
Resting from their work
Homebuilding can be tiring
This tanka was written for Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge. We are to use the word Vacation/Holiday in our poem. I finished this Photo painting of these birds today. I am stretching the prompt a little to give them a much needed vacation on a limb!
This Photo was shot out my back window with a 200mm zoom lens. I got lucky on this shot. Only one chance for the photo and it turned out great. Printed on canvas then painted with acrylics.
