Short-legged Neighbours

The best part of our new home is the abundance of birds, from the young cardinal whose family nests in the bushes behind, to this unexpected visitor outside my window.

To watch the birds is mesmerizing. This fierce hunter also makes an appearance daily:

Naturally, there are many more species, but I’ll save those for another day.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. You got a great shot. I do t have a lens to shoot a hummingbird in the air. My full frame lens is a 4.0. Frank has a 2.8 but he is having problems with his camera body. It’s too darn heavy for me anyway.
