Weekly Photo Challenge: Wildlife

4 jackdaws longing for fried potatoes

Real Wildlife? I admit, the quartet is not as dangerous as 4 eagles, 4 tigers, 4 lions, 4 crocodiles or 4 sharks! But I’m sure they boldly could say NO! NO!! NO!!! to French fried potatoes if they would decide so! Nevertheless, on this evening in the Alps the 4 jackdaws were longing instantly for fried potatoes. They look as if they even could break into a begging song to get some more chips (I already had given in that moment a third of my meal to them!): I won’t say, they can sing in harmony like the BEATLES, the BEACH BOYS, the BEE GEES or the famous GOLDEN GATE QUARTET, but I think, in their heart they felt like being an effective gang – a hang-glider gang, worth to get some fried potatoes after the day’s work was done. P.S.: We are 1.850 meters high on that mountain “Jenner”, Berchtesgaden, sporty isn’t it? I have to admit: them with their own muscles, me using a cable car…

I like the weekly photo challenge at wordpress.com – below the photos I’ve used in the meantime:
