I kept waiting for the picture to get larger as it loaded - interesting crop and feeling to this. Was it taken through a dirty window?
Aksel from Norway: No, the window is behind the birds. The picture is quite big actually, the black background on SC might have fooled you wink

Very nice silhouette, and I agree with Ginnie, this would make a great design for a christmas card.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks smile

Your shot reminded me Fernando Botero's bird sculptures.
Funny that everyone thinks that is the crop as you intended it to be. If they would switch to a white background, they would see the real size of the picture (which I think works better).
Aksel from Norway: Thanks. I'm pretty sure it's my mother in law that has made this sculptures. I'm glad you noticed the size of the "real" picture smile
A very funny picture Aksel
Aksel from Norway: Thanks Chris

They are all sitting on some high window sill staring at the rain and wondering when they can leave.

The amount of dark foreground is a bit unusual. But you have me thinking of some modern house with high windows.
Aksel from Norway: You're right about the rain Louis. It's actually from inside one of my wifes family cottages...

Aksel from Norway: Thanks - that is an intersting way of reading the picture....
