Yukon Bird Gang

Task 2013: I’ll try to post everyday a photo [that’s a 365 day project], introducing Flickr photographers, who sent their artworks to my group BLOG IT! Below a cool composition by Keith Williams, cold weather survival strategies – maybe you like to take the shot as a metaphor (like me): our optimal strategy to survive 2013, if the upcoming year gets harder than 2012 …

    heart melting – together we stand, divided we fall

    • hi Laura!
      For many brave soldiers some tips how to desert would have been a better advice. Why not emigrate to Quebec? A bad flashback to the soldiers of Napoleon entering Moscow too. Not to mention German soldiers in Stalingrad. Together we stand, divided we fall – in this bird case for sure a good idea, but for soldiers without using reflection: sometimes not; is my European opinion too much for an American soul?
