A couple of Stone Curlews
About a year ago, when I came to work after the Passover vacation, I noticed a couple of Stone Curlews (a.k.a. Dikkops or Thick-knees, Burhinus oedicnemus, Авдотка, כרוון מצוי) in the middle of Actelis parking lot. I had my camera with me, so I took a few pictures. Strangely the birds were reluctant to leave the parking lot, running away from me, but not flying.

Car and Girl

Jaguar E-type, Paris, France
I never quite understood that need to adorn the pictures of new cars with beautiful women. Is it supposed to make men think that owning the car would make them more attractive to said women or is it just a way to sneak pictures of half-dressed women into car magazines?
