Portland Miscellaneous 2015 — photo 16 of 32: Metal spikes on top of a business sign at the KeyBank on the corner of SW 5th Avenue and SW Washginton Street in downtown Portland, Oregon. I suppose their purpose is to keep the birds off, but obviously they don’t keep the spiders off! These spikes make me think of a similar tactic I tried on a bird feeder in my backyard. September 2015. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
