Rob Schackne #658 - "My camera this morning"

My camera this morning
steady shaking cold fingers
black & white some colour

backyard bird pied currawong
behaving like ah itself
also black & white

jumps on the fence
for a few shots I say hello
he glares with one yellow eye

hops about checks the netting
on the fruit tree makes a note
looks more kindly at me

he carols a little once
very loudly a little close
before he swoops on past

I review my excited shots
and discarding most of the bird
keep the headless ones & the heart

(my cousin Charlie
the real bird photographer
makes it look easy)
