Ghost Bird

10 years 2 months ago - 10 years 2 months ago #149117 by Baydream
At sometime during the night or yesterday morning, a bird made the classic "NASCAR right turn" and slammed into the window of the cottage next door. The evidence was discovered yesterday. This poor creature hit that window a real whack. We have not found a body so not sure of its fate but the results are eerie. One shot is with a black apron held up behind the window just enough to let the sunlight get to the glass, the other with the natural background.





Whatever it was, it had a serious headache afterward.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

In American superstition, that's a sign of death in the family. :evil:

no question of what hit the window then :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: thats a very clear imprint, but you would be surprised how many birds bump into windows and survive, probably with one hell of a headache.

That is an eery shot. As you did not find the bird and there is no imprint of the head hopefully it did survive its' crash.

Oh dear..... have you found it yet? Maybe he was wet and had stuff stuck all over him and he didn't hit as hard as it appears.... Yeah, I no, lot likely but I'm trying to think positive. :)

It;s been raining a lot since "the incident". No sign yet but the salt spray and the natural oil from the feathers could have caused the image. Let's hope.
I'll put out some Excedrin just in case.
