Aside from food, I am blogging on birds in Israel.
I was on my way to Israel in Nov/Dec 2013 and enroute on Turkish Airline I was watching the movie, The Big Year starring Steve Martin. It was about two bird enthusiasts who left everything aside for their BIG YEAR to spot the most birds competitively. This led me to try to watch some birds during the two weeks that I am in Israel. Israel recorded about more than 500 birds in a small country and given Israel's geographical location meeting three continents there are certainly a lot of birds watching to do...and it became my first attempt to capture some birdie shots here........

I was attracted by it bright blue wings.
