Header Competition #50 - All the Worlds a Stage

The header theme this week by (Gailsman the actor) and is "All the Worlds a Stage". He is in a play at this time and the theme is right up his alley. Mac, Gail's Man, Lanny, Dave and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and start the voting after that.

Darla, Martha and Tom W are on a break. Come back as soon as you are able my friends.

I have not been to a play in quite a while so I will borrow from the immortal William Shakespeare's play "As You Like It" where it says "All the worlds a stage". I saw this stage near the shore at the lake today. You can only imagine the stories told here.
Mister Blue Jay trying to decide which peanut to chose, it is quite the show on the stage.
A Red Bellied Woodpecker was happy to stop and converse.
A mating pair of Dark Eyed Junco were telling me quite a story and were very thankful for the spill of the bird seed.
The one I finally chose was a Morning Dove that was acting on the stage this past week.

Love the birds, and yes I agree that staging could probably tell a story or two.

Gailsman said...

Fantastic perspective on this post. Great photos and love how you tie it all together like a neighborhood play just waiting to hit the big-time. Nicely done.

Just beyond gorgeous, Tom! I can sit here and look at the visual treat you shared and feel like I was there visiting with you! :)

WHat delightful shots!

Mary said...

Wonderful photos and that dove certainly looks like a real "ham" actor. They know how to strut across any stage available....and they hate to leave.
