Star Warblers

This particular entry has been a long time coming…  I suppose you could say that it was started a long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away).

It was meant to be a bit of a round-up of all the warblers I had seen on my wanderings throughout the late spring and early summer, but had been repeatedly held up because I didn’t really have the computer skills necessary to pull through with an idea for the audio-visual spectacular I had conjured up in my mind.

I still don’t have the computer skills, as will shortly become evident…

Apologies go to George Lucas for potentially bringing the legacy of Star Wars into disrepute (although, I think the Phantom Menace did that already!) and also to the wider world for inflicting a load of dodgy bird wordplay on it.  I acknowledge I have ‘borrowed’ the official Star Wars theme, but, in my defence, I did try to learn it on a keyboard, but I neither have a keyboard nor any musical talent.

And now, just as most of the Warblers are starting to disappear south as part of their annual autumn migration, I present Star Warblers in all its dubious glory… Enjoy!

 

I am not sure how long I’ve got before lawyers acting on behalf of Lucasfilm turn up and shut me down, so I’ll fire off a quick a photo montage of some warblers that have sat in front of my camera over the past few months and say a big thank you to the three or four of you who read this blog…

May the force be with you!

If a butterfly flaps its wings, will I hack my legs to bits on brambles whilst taking a photo of it?

You bet I will!

About mixaeljones

Hello! I try to undertake a yearly challenge and write about it in a semi-witty manner. I often use twenty words when three will do. I am also a big fan of terrible puns and taking unintentionally blurry photographs of wildlife. In 2013 I tried to eat a food I hadn't eaten before each week (I got to 28!), in 2014 I attempted to seek out as many species of bird as I could in the year (I got to 201!) and in 2015 I delved head first into the world of butterflies and tried to see as many different types as possible (44!)... I've also done some belly dancing, been Father Christmas and nearly played tennis against Bjorn Borg. If any of this seems like it might be of interest, feel free to check out my blogs... Comments encouraged! Have a nice day :)

    Great birdbrains think alike! I just finished a theatrical production called Starwarblers-The Farce Awakens. I got a big kick out of our strikingly similar senses of humour.
