……and I think it’s spring! This morning I woke to something different. Was it the sun shining through the window? Maybe because bright sunshine has been scarce recently, but it was more than that. I lay there for a few minutes trying to figure it out, and then I knew. It was bird sounds, not just the familiar dove but a sweet harmony of sound that I haven’t heard for several months. I looked out the window, and there they were, birds, all sizes, all shapes, all colors. I quickly grabbed my camera and quietly, or so I thought, eased into the yard hoping to photograph their morning gathering. Rats, the birds took flight, all but one, a robin so busy pecking at the ground he didn’t even know I was there, at least not for a few seconds. When he did sense my presence, it was as if he posed, patiently positioning himself so I could get this wonderful picture.
Ah, spring, how I love it!
