Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 72

in Feathered Friends4 months ago

Hello Feathered Friends Lovers,

Welcome to #SMaP Show Me A Photo Contest Round 72!

I have a list with ideas and suggestions about the themes of the contest proposed by some of you and all are really interesting and I very much wish to use them all. All I have to do is to make a photo to match.

For this round I will use the suggested by @qwerrie - BIRD STANDING ON ONE LEG. He has given that idea long ago, but I haven't got a proper photo until recently. In one of his entries he suggested again the same and I was lucky with two shots of a sparrow. The bird was streatching on a fence and one of the legs was hidden, so here we have one legged sparrow, or bird standing on one leg.

So, here is the theme for this round




Now is your turn and let me see your photos of birds, but first read carefully the rules below⬇️


Show me your photo of a bird, following these rules:

  • The photo must be your own.
  • Post in the community Feathered Friends
  • You may add more photos, but you should state which one is your entry, otherwise the first will be taken into account.
  • Tell us something about your photo/s.
  • Your photo must follow the weekly theme.
  • Please put the link of your entry in the comment section of the contest post here.
  • Put in the title of your post that this is an entry for the contest. (Optional)
  • Use #smap as a tag.

Last, but not least - have fun!

If you create quality post with more images and interesting story about them, making extra effort can give you bigger upvotes and attract curators. Keep that in mind.


Five winners and each winner will receive 2 Hive and 200 Ecency POINTS.

I would like to thank our judge @oks2crypto, who is doing such a great job and help choosing among all entries the winners.

Huge thank you Feathered Friends Community and @melinda010100 for sponsoring the contest. I should not miss to mention our most talented artist @barbara-orenya for her constant and creative support.

Thank you for viewing.



an intresting piece of info. as @ratel educated me in the comments, the case when bird is standing on one leg, may mean that she is frozen and tries to make herself warmer.
I know what to post now xD cheers!

That's interesting info. Never knew that. However, it will be challenging week and I am very much looking forward to the new entries and curious what you have. 🙂

well... probably that blackbird-in-meditation that I already shared, just from new angles. and a coot that I shared even earlier. sadly, biodiversity in my metropolis is not that huge 😂
