Good shot! I have taken soem like that in Walmart's parking lot. Lately, th birds tend to fly away when "they see my camera coming out of my pocket." lol Wish we had blue skies like tht today -- for once it isn't going to rain and we had fog all morning and not a speck of blue in that sky!

PERBS said...

I really can spell -- just can't type. :o(

Har du bytta ut måkene Rune. Hmmm, ikke bra :-)

Stilig med kondensstripa. Klapp klapp.

Håper formen er god.

John said...

Ivar jeg tror det er en måke forkledd som en skjære.
Fint bidrag til SWF Rune.

Jeni said...

Stark, clean, crisp and oh, so blue! And so pretty too with what has to be my favorite shade of blue.

Kitty said...

A magpie! One of my favourite birds - I'd love to know what this one was thinking.

Ivar Ivrig said...

Nice shot...and a very blue sky. I have not seen a magpie where I live.

RuneK said...

Stilig bilde Rune. Noen ganger "skjærer" deg seg når man skal ta måkebilde :o) Ha en fin Skywatch!

Mojo said...

He's watching the sky, you're watching him. So by the transitive property of Sky Watching, you're watching the sky.

Cool shot!

Ida said...

Du ser opp og den ser ned....
Flott Sky Watch post.
Og du, om dere gutta skal møtes for en øl, så blir jeg gjerne med! ;)

Janie said...

Are we watching him, or is he watching us? Great photo.

Photo Cache said...

I hope you didn't wait long to get this shot. I often find myself waiting a long time and no luck.

Her var det jo så mange morsomme kommentarer atte! :) Men så enkelt og flott kan det gjøres!

Carver said...

I love this shot. The bird appears to be a look out.

Reader Wil said...

Beautiful true blue! Rune, you are always ready to go in for actions. You have demonstrated for peace and against the wars in the middle east. And I thank you for your support.

Sylvia K said...

Love that blue sky! and the bird makes it a perfect shot! I thank you, too, for your support aagainst wars in the middle east. Thanks for the beautiful photo and thanks for your support!

Just denna sortens enkelhet tycker jag så väldigt bra om. Ja och så gillar jag skator också. Stiliga fåglar, stilig post.

Ackworth born said...

ah yes a jolly shot - we see magpies a lot around here

RuneK said...

Har jeg glemt å fortelle deg at det er her Langbein bor? hehe....

esnorway said...

Rett og slett enkelt men det funker men savner måka men mulig den har fått påskeferie?

Babooshka said...

We have regular garden magpies. I know not your usual garden bird. He looks to be surveying that beatiufl blue sky.

Tricia said...

You're watching the sky & we're all Sky Watching! LoL!

Great shot from Norway!

Lew said...

He has an unobstructed view of the sky! Beautiful skies you have there.

RennyBA said...

Nice little fellow sitting high and dry - well captured Rune!

Bryan said...

The lamp looks a bit dejected with head hanging down in that it doesn't get to watch the sky too.

At noen snakker sammen vet vi godt, men at noen også hører hva det snakkes om er vel tidligere bare overvåkingstjenesten som gjorde.
Cloud computing is coming to stay.

naturglede said...

Så enkelt, men likevel så elegant! Flott levert:)

Malyss said...

As gulls , we have more and more "pies" (as we call them here); It seems that birds accustom more and more to the city life, and get used to lamps in place of trees ..
Pies are known as good thieves.They like every thing that's shining.When I look at them, it seems to me they are looking for the next thing they will take..Maybe this one was looking at your camera!..:-))

oldmanlincoln said...

I left you an answer about the tropical bamboo on the site. Thanks for your question.

auringonkukka finland =) said...

beautiful image! magpie we have known and have been a lot:)

Old Wom Tigley said...

A nice image indeed Rune

The single Magpie reminded me of this ..

One for sorrow,
two for joy,
three for a girl,
four for a boy,
five for silver,
six for gold,
seven for a secret never to be told.

These no sorrow in seeing this shot though

Truls said...

Denne dagen hadde du selskap mens du kikket på himmelen.
Her er det ikke mye å se oppover, bare snø, snø og snø.

Ivon said...

Great SWF photo. My eyes were drawn to the single bird sitting and watching you. Thanks for sharing.

GMG said...

Hi Rune! Sorry for the absence! It has been hard to get some free time... ;)
That blue is awesome!!
Amazing Joy shot!!

Now, «The Masterpiece» waits you and your comments at Blogtrotter. You shouldn’t miss it, believe me... ;). Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Arija said...

Beautifully crisp, clean shot. Nice to have someone else appreciating the sky...

Barbara Martin said...

Birds like to be up high and what better place than to keep an eye on things.

fishing guy said...

Rune: What a cool shot of the bird in the clear blue sky.

Lara said...
