Little bird hid in the tree branches, thinking he was invisible here. He didn’t realize that his bright plumage gave his hiding place away.
The hands that were going to shoot him were steady. Their stance professional and aim accurate. The little birdie wasn’t aware of what was going on till he heard the sound.
A click broke the stillness of the air. The bird, startled, flew away. The man holding the camera looked through the camera, checking the photos he had just taken. Satisfied, he gave a smile and walked away looking for another beauty to shoot.
