Swooping season

Today’s writing prompt:

Magpies.

Fortunately, the magpies in my area are friendly but I have had a few not-so-pleasant encounters in the past 😦

Ibis

Today’s prompt . . .

A single ibis flew across the red horizon.

 

Early Birds

Today’s prompt . . .

The early bird gets the worm.

Are you an early riser or do you love to sleep in?

Pelicans

A writing prompt for today . . .

A lone Pelican flew across the horizon.

Inspired by a television show I watched recently 🙂

While so many of us race around frantically in the pre-Christmas rush . . . these guys continue on as usual!

Perhaps there’s a lesson there for us 🙂

These cheeky Sparrows kept me amused as I waited in the car while Rod went into a ‘boys’ shop 🙂

 

Unusual Pets

There’s still a little space left in the October PETS issue . . . I have lots of dog, cat and chook pieces but I’d love to include more stories and poems about unusual pets.

There’s still time to send your story or poem. I don’t have an official cut-off point but please post as soon as possible.

Where there’s a will there’s a way . . . and this Corella was very determined to find a way to get rid of the chain and lock 🙂
