I guess my wife has a point, I like birds!
At least I think I do, I know I tend to take lots of pictures of them. I'm not the bird watcher type who gets goose bumps when he comes across that rare tittering red bellied Brazilian pud knocker. aka: Anas brazilmensis. But when a bird flies by I just have to shoot it (with camera of course). I guess it's similar to when the ball is thrown and the dog has no choice but to chase it.
This photo was taken near my home in the fall. Many fall mornings are foggy near the lake making for these great backgrounds. This picture wouldn't be nearly as appealing to me if it were sunny and the background was competing with the foreground.
