This morning, I went to work late because I had to take care
of some business. Due to the overcast, I was feeling discouraged
about the prospect of finding any interesting pictures.
Then I saw this young man feeding granola to the street fowl.
He moved slowly, purposely, to encourage the pigeons
to take the cereal from his hand, while in the background
a flock of sparrows formed a circle just beyond the larger birds,
waiting for a small crumb to come their way. It did.
While he distracted the pigeons with a larger helping of food,
a small scattering was tossed to the little guys.
Somewhere above, a pair of peregrine falcons
is dining on grain-fed street chickens.
