WPC: Solitary Watcher

This post is for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s prompt is solitude.

I photographed this jackdaw when we were in Cornwall last summer. It was sitting all on its own in a tree in the middle of Tintagel village. Jackdaws are very social creatures, seen more often in groups than on their own, so I thought of it as soon as I saw this week’s prompt.

My internet connection is still very hit and miss at the moment. The last several days I’ve been told it’s been great during the daytime while I’ve been at work. Unfortunately it’s been abysmal each evening after I’ve arrived home. Grr. It took ages to upload this picture, and I’ve had the message ‘saving of draft failed’ flashing up on my screen every few minutes while I’ve been putting together the rest of the post. I’m now just hoping that I manage to get an internet connection long enough to actually post it! I’ll respond to comments, and visit everyone’s blogs as soon as I can, but, as you can probably guess, commenting is very frustrating when you have to type the comment several dozen times before it sends.

    • Thanks for understanding, Ameena. It’s still been very hit and miss, unfortunately. Having said that, it’s been mostly good this morning, and I’m hoping it will stay that way for the rest of the day… Fingers crossed. On the positive side, I’ve not had anything to distract me from working on my novel!
