sparrow

The little sparrow in the photo above, caught its dinner!

I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn. -Henry David Thoreau

I enjoyed watching the American Rosefinch, above, having breakfast. It is not a Purple Finch, although it might seem to be at first glance.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. -Chinese Proverb

Two Birds for Wednesday

I took the above photograph through my living room window.

The above photograph was taken from my patio, while the bird was sitting on a tree branch.

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
George Eliot

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
Lou Holtz

A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked.
Anais Nin

Great Egret and Turtle

It is time for Our World Tuesday!

While walking through the orange grove and its environs, this morning with my grandies, we came upon this gorgeous Great Egret, day dreaming away!

Within a few moments I was able to capture the lovely winged-one staring down at a turtle, who was looking up at the egret.

They looked like old buddies having a conversation in the beautiful sunlight.
