    Birds Are Always Fun To Shoot.

    Birds are always fun to shoot. Feels like I was a bird in my past life shot down by an arrow separated from my lover. That is why I have a aching left side and a non stop search for a soul mate.

    Ducks

    I have never owned a bird (I have 3 cats) but I love the creatures.  There is a local park I go to regularly and I feed the ducks, geese, pigeons and gulls there.  It is one of my ways to relax and sort out what's going on in my life while communing with nature.

    The birds possess an honour

    and courage that man does not possess. Man lives in the shadow of laws and customs which he made and fashioned for himself , but the birds live according to the same free Eternal Law which causes the earth to pursue its mighty path about the sun.
