Of the species Brick-billed shadow-wing? :)

John said...

I think you have 'snow fever', Rune. Nice one.

James said...

It sure casts a nice shadow.

A roof? Oh, my! How high IS the snow?

Malyss said...

I'm wondering how big this roof is?..
Alien bird?..Atomic duck?..an other white powder mixed with the snow that makes you see unusual things?..^_^

GAWO said...

Jeg skal gjøre som du sier - ta turen igjen i mai. Jeg kunne ikke stikke innom for jeg aner ikke hvor "innom" er :-) Men om denne dingsen er på taket ditt skal jeg lete etter den neste gang jeg er i området, så finner jeg sikkert fram.

Noe så undelig, må være noe lufte greier det der...

Yolanda said...

That is one cute bird ;)

Paulie said...

You have a great imagination!

Tulsa Gentleman said...

I hope you will tell us what and where that is. That is some roof top.

RuneE said...

It isn't as bad as it looks: It is some ventilation outlet on the flat roof of a pumping station for water. I'm standing on the top a small hill beside it

becky at abbeystyle said...

hahaha, thanks for the laugh out loud! You have a glorious imagination.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Har bladd litt i fugleboken min nå, og kan konkludere med at dette er en ventilasjonsfugl. Veldig utbredt tidlig på 80-tallet, men bestanden har sunket veldig de siste tiår. Kunne vært spennende å se et par i hekking... :o)

Stilig bilde!

Petunia said...

Tror det må være en krysning melleom en jernspurv og en vendehals.. Kanskje en vendejern?
Godt obeservert er det i alle fall;)

Marka said...

But it makes for an interesting photographic subject.

Anne-Berit said...

Det ble et stilig bilde av det,og det er jo det viktigste.Arti å se alt du får med deg på turene dine:-)

Doesn't actually looks "free like a bird....... " :-)

i really like this photo, the shadow and the title.

Barbara Martin said...

Excellent new species of bird, RuneE.

Ken Mac said...

gone fishing?

ChrisJ said...

These are such great shots Rune and the one of the Mallard with the splash is a winner!

Vaggelis said...

great composition. i would like to see the view on top of this roof

Ida said...

Klatret du?
I så fall, må du love meg å være forsiktig. ;)

Flott komposisjon.
Godt observert,
og med et glimt i øyet.
Bra! :)

Vaggelis said...

THANK YOU FOR THE LINK. IT'S REALLY FANTASTIC VIEW

I wonder what that hook is for?

Gerald (Ackworth born) said...

I thought it was a frozen lake at first - when you said it was a roof I assumed it must be a chimney of some kind - a lovely composition.

En artig skapning :)

Viola said...

Ja.. og på skyggen kan den nesten se ut som en svane.. :)

Gärdsmygen said...

Vad gjorde du på taket?
Raritet hittade du iallafall.
