A Tree Suspended In Midair

DSC_2611I 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. ”

Coffee Break and Birding

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!

Bird Time

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 !
