Sunday Snapsho t- "Birds and the.......flowers!"

Besides kids and art, music and flowers, food and eating(....wait...I'm thinking) decorating, sunshine and photography and lot of other stuff.........

......I also love.....birds. I just find them fascinating. 

I mean, have you ever wondered just how many feathers cover their bodies? And....what the heck are they thinking about when they cock their head and stare you right in the eye?

There were dozens of these birds all over the floor when we visited our little nature park greenhouse.....almost stepped on a few.

And for awhile...the place was quiet with almost no one else around. I almost felt like I was trespassing on their turf.....so I was happy they let me stay awhile and cooo to them as I clicked away.

Ok....so maybe this one was starting to tire of the visitor with that big black thing beeping and clicking away.

So...I gave my feathered friends a break to capture some of the fauna and flora......which was equally fascinating.

Hoping everyone has a wonderful start to the new week.

Stop and smell the flowers this week....and look up....you might just see a little bird flying by.

Don't miss it!

Lovely, Wanda!
I have a soft spot for cocaktiels - we had one named Elvis and he was so smart!
Have a great week :)

Bokeh MAMA....love it all in the bird pictures. I'm an admirer of their beauty...but them, not so much since Alfred Hitchcock....I'm more of a Tippee Hedron type.
(even though you're the one who looks like her!)

But, undeniably these photo are gorgeous as are the flora and fauna...I know just where you were when you captured these shots...and I wish I were walking there again with you!
