This clever magpie wasn’t letting any water go to waste, waiting for each drop from the tap.

    Hallo menirma; a wonderful image. did the drop realy fall or did you PS it in? Whichever way, it is a truly wonderful shot…Bert

  • Of, it definitely fell of its own accord, Bert! I couldn’t believe this magpie was standing there waiting for drops of water – so funny watching him wait… and wait… and wait. I was very lucky to catch the drop as I did.

    fantastic shot! poor thing,so thirsty….

  • Thanks, Mary Helen! It was certainly enterprising of him. Why fly around in the summer heat looking for water when humans have left a tap dripping?!

    My book has a picture of a hooded crow part of the book is about this bird resurrected from a human and how he saves the world from alien tyranny.

  • Cool. Interesting. Though this is an Australian magpie, which isn’t in the crow family (even if he looks like one).
