01.28.2020 Ice Birds

Some birds head south for the winter.  Not this one.


And this reminded me of the Monty comic strip character, Pilsner

Yes, I do read the comics page.  It’s one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal reading of the newspaper.

  1. The first one reminds me of aerial views of the Earth.

  3. I was going to say “That’s one strange dude of a bird you see in the second picture.” Then I followed your link and saw what you had in mind.

    In the second one I see an oversized bird scrambling to get away on a tiny motorcycle. 😂

    I saw our tri-colored heron in the first image. The beak is perfect, and the colors are a good match, even though they’re distributed a little differently in the real bird. I didn’t see anything particular in the second, although I’d never heard of Monty or Pilsner. Before I followed your link, I thought the image might have been something Monty would have drawn if he’d had too many pilsners.

    • Some of the things I have connections to aren’t always on other people’s minds or within their experiences.
      I see two different beak possibilities in the first image. A sharp and a broad. It’s funny about the second…I thought that had as more obvious bird outline…although with an obviously more developed cranium. 🙂


  6. …the comics page is the best page in the newspaper, Steve!

    The comics are often the only entries worth reading. I give thanks for them.

    As I wandered the beach this morning, I was seeing creatures also. Funny, we’re on opposite sides of the world, doing the similar things.
    As for comics, I think many are clever in giving their dark message wrapped up brightly.

    • Well, I am glad that, although distant, we are travelling parallel paths in a way, Annie. 🙂

      I prefer the silly comics that make you chuckle for a moment, but I do read all including those that deal with more serious issues like health and aging. There isn’t enough cause for smiling these days so any excuse is welcomed. Especially nice comments from fellow bloggers. 🙂

    In the second photo I like all the scratchy texture in the background as much as I like that fabulous shape.
