I was staring at it and twisting and turning my head this way and that. I was not seeing it wrong, however, the visual was secretive. A large part of a tree had broken off and was suspended in midair. It was protected by growth from another tree so the illusion was deceptive to my senses. It reminded me of the quote from Henry David Thoreau, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. ”
I got a great treat today when I had some bird couples drop by. I wish you could have heard the arguments going on between the woodpecker couple and the Blue Jay couple. I was wonder why they were so mad at each other? But then again they could have just been flirting!!! It makes my heart sing to hear and see all the fuss going on in my yard!
I am so fortunate to live in a bird paradise. If you are patience, they will come. I have been waiting for this fella to be in just the right place for me to take his photo! Look at all them all ! He is adorable !
There is a story here, but you have to think deep or perhaps very shallow. You choose.
Life involves much contemplating. Fred the heron from the PNW is listening carefully and will make a decision soon.
Ok. I guess I didn’t get that. What did you say? I am all ears.
Got it! Yep. Your mine.
Dumbfounded Fred is sad. There is always next time. Well. Not always. Perhaps Fred there are bigger fish to fry. Your turn will come. Life brings rewards at times and sometimes we are left empty handed. Fred’s face says it all. No words needed.
Thanks from Fred for dropping by and attempting to fish with him. Wish him luck! I think deeper waters brings a prize!
One of my best photographs I have taken. I am moved really about the way I caught the birds in action. It is as if you are looking at the anatomy of the birds as they reached out toward each other. Thought provoking.
