Day 30 > A Bird On The Wing
I stopped by the old St. John's School this morning to scout for possible photo opportunities in it's stone entryway. A group of common house sparrows were chattering in some nearby shrubs and as I zoomed in on one of the two eagle sculptures perched on either corner of the ledge above the school door's, one of them broke from the flock and landed on the head of its oblivious stone cousin. As I continued searching for good angles at which to capture the eagle, I tried to incorporate the smaller bird into the composition. After a minute, it moved to the perfect spot on the wing and seemed to do its best impression of the larger bird's stern visage.
