This post goes for 'Show me a photo (of a bird)' contest, round #72. Week's topic was 'Bird standing on one leg'. As simple as that!

Not so long ago, I just came across suitable stories, these folders have not yet sunk into the depths of memory and archives, and I will be happy to show you two birds today. First, the coot. She stood thoughtfully on the shore for a long time, was in no hurry to show me herself from different sides, and did not hide her most important asset - her legs!

Не так давно мне как раз попались подходящие сюжеты, эти папки еще не утонули в глубинах памяти и архивов, и я с радостью покажу вам сегодня двух птичек. Во-первых, лысуха. Она долго задумчиво стояла на берегу, никуда не спешила и показа мне себя с разных сторон, и не скрыла свое самое главное достояние - ноги!

That feeling... when your nose itches unbearably, and only your legs are available for use!


So, the coot was in no hurry and stood on the shore (separated from me by a large puddle, and therefore feeling safe), she stared at the horizon, breathed in deeply the delicious sea air and probably strengthened her health. Meditation, yoga, whatever... One certain pose clearly reminded me of Tuladandasana!

Итак, лысуха никуда не спешила и стояла на берегу (отделенная от меня большой лужей, и потому чувствуя себя в безопасности), смотрела вдаль, дышала вкусным морским воздухом и наверное укрепляла свое здоровье. Медитация, йога, всякое такое. Одна поза явно напомнила мне туладандасану!

No, really, this is the real tuladanda'sana pose! Check yourself: #src

This is effective and universal pose, which has a lot of therapeutical benefits : calms the mind, boosts memory, increases lung capacity, cures asthma, strengthens the muscles of back, shoulders & thighsm stimulates the abdominal organs, etc.

Это одна из самых действенных и универсальных поз тантра-йоги, в ней работает всё тело, а терапевтические эффекты весьма многочисленны: укрепляются мышцы спины, сердце и кровеносная система, ослабляется астма.

Uff! relief... hard asana -- one hardly can long it more than 10 seconds...

Now we may say goodbye to this healthy coot, and let me show you another find.

This blackbird - good fellow - was sitting on a Linden tree, posing me, meditating... (yoga and meditation go together well, right?..) I have no facts, just assumptions, why he was doing this purely in "one-leg mode".
As @ratel told me in comments-section, one of the frequent possible cases for birds doing so, is when they feel frozen, hiding one leg to make it warmer.
But I doubt this was my case: it is late May, the weather was fine and pretty warm. So... still unclear.
I put up a close-up crop of the photo above, in case you may be curious to look at the photo original in hi-res... believe me, I didnt photoshop this. Besides that I have more shots of said blackbird from different angles xD

Thrushes do not have such festive festive plumage as, for example, starlings, but minimalism in decoration can also give a significant bonus! Thrushes can look adorable!

У дроздов нет такого нарядного праздничного оперения, как например у скворцов, но минимализм в офрмлении тоже может давать существенный бонус! Дрозды могут смотреться очаровательно!

Hello dear friend @qwerrie good day
What a great idea you have had for the weekly slogan.
That's what I call knowing how to wait to take the most appropriate shots, I loved how you shot at the right time to get these beautiful shots.
Excellent shots, I appreciate you sharing with us
have a beautiful day

Resting a leg, taking a nap, or warming up yoga, lovely photography with birds that co-operated long enough to get a couple of excellent photos.

Good afternoon @qwerrie !

What lovely shots you have given us !

No doubt that coot has been taking yoga classes. From the looks of it they have a very good elongation.

The thrush, as always a bird as beautiful as it is restless.

It is very comical to see them standing on one leg and if you have watched it for several minutes you will notice how it starts to sway on its sides when it starts to get tired until it ends up doing a foot switch.

Excellent post. Big hug

Почему не весь текст переведён на русский?
Было бы интересно всю статью почитать

Если уж вы взялись перевести на русски то нужно дело довести до конца, не так ли?
Нужно уважать читателей, как английских так и русских

Funny legs the coot has. But the way it stretches is exactly like having some exercise. Outstanding pics @qwerrie. 🙂

Hopefully the blackbird has a second foot 😟. Is the blackbird a blackbird or a thrush?

Watch out for the human traffickers at hivefest. You wont know it until its too late. STAY AWAY! Beware, traffickers can be women or men! They will act nice until they dont. There is human trafficking going on around this type of crypto. I have witnessed it. They literally have attempted my murder and are trying to kill me with V2K and RNM. Five years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://ecency.com/fyrstikken/@fairandbalanced/i-am-the-only-motherfucker-on-the-internet-pointing-to-a-direct-source-for-voice-to-skull-electronic-terrorism ..... https://ecency.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem if you run into one of them you may want to immediately shoot them in the face. 187, annihilate, asphyxiate, assassinate, behead, bleed, bludgeon, boil, bomb, bone, burn, bury, butcher, cap, casket, choke, chop, club, crucify, crush, curb, decapitate, decimate, deflesh, demolish, destroy, devein, disembowel, dismember, drown, electrocute, eliminate, end, euthanize, eviscerate, execute, explode, exterminate, extinguish, finish, fry, grind, guillotine, gut, hack, hang, hit, ice, implode, incinerate, kill, liquidate, lynch, massacre, maul, microwave, mutilate, neutralize, obliterate, off, pop, poison, punnish, quarter, ruin, shank, shock, shoot, shred, skin, slay, slaughter, smoke, smother, snipe, snuff, squish, stab, strangle, stone, suffocate, suicide, SWAT, swing, terminate, torture, terrorize, whack, waste, wreck.

Awesome Photos Qwerrie!! I love the amusing way you presented them as well..lol. I think it may just be a resting pose. The Blackbird is really pretty with the colorful ring around its eye. You really got some terrific captures! Good luck in the contest! 💕

thanks for all the kind words you found for these captures, I am happy you like the visuals, and my 'legend attached' made you smile a bit xD

dont know for sure, what it was... maybe some sort of a 'leizure time', indeed. I wish birds could tell us the stories from their secret life. but other way, we only have to decypher them ourselves..

let me share a mushroom !PIZZA with you 😏 meowww!
