There seems to be something magical about rain. I love to step outside while it's still dripping, while everything feels and smells so fresh. The world comes alive with activity.
This was one of those moments. There were so many birds singing, flying from perch to perch, chirping that I felt like I had stepped into a wonderland. When I heard this female Downy's chirps, I thought she might be headed for the suet feeder, and she was. But not before pausing to take it all in and give me these lovely poses. My, I think she's hungry! Or maybe this is her dessert attitude.
For the Love of It...
