(AS IS, Finepix F70EXR, I is for Interest, Intrigue, or Iron rails, taken 16 Nov 2009)
Somewhere along the Thames path (more precisely, in Hammersmith, London), on my lunchtime walk, I found these fellows pausing on the rail, and readying themselves for a flight across the river. Right to left: one looks absent-minded, four look almost ready, one looks like he’s about to fall forward, and the closest one looks suddenly interested in my camera (‘can I eat it?!’). Only when I looked at the picture at home I noticed what a bad hair day he’s been having :-)

Sold this as a card – thanks, Berns!
