I couldn’t resist the humor in these photos. The cast iron feeder with integral iron birds standing guard over the bowl, and the small songbird using one of them as a perch before feeding.
Sometimes you just have to let yourself go and jump right into the fray…in this case a bowl filled with bird feed.
One just never knows who may drop by. The bird feed is for Cardinals, but all we have seen eat of it are a variety of small songbirds…until Mr. Jay dropped in. I must admit he looks a bit perplexed.
A closer look is needed to see if what’s in the bowl is worth getting.
Once that decision was made, the Blue jay grabbed his share, stared down his iron relative, and then flew off not to be seen again.
Isn’t Spring wonderful !!
To each of you who read the selected quotes and viewed my photographs in this series entitled, Quotes & Pics, I sincerely want to say, ” thank you “. I am especially grateful to those who viewed every post and gave me consecutive thumbs up. That was very kind of you. Why an epilogue? Because I was surprised. Here I was accepting the creative funk that I was in (for which I had no explanation) and discovered that as soon as I began posting the quotations coupled with the photographs, I suddenly looked forward to doing so each day. I knew I was stuck and had simply hoped I would recapture the ability to creatively blog after this series was over…at least that was my thinking. I doubt I am alone when it comes to ‘hitting a wall ‘, although that doesn’t change anything. However, in the midst of this experience I learned something about myself.I realize that I tend to take myself and what I do a bit too seriously at times, even though I enjoy injecting humor along the way. I also enjoy a good laugh which is oxymoronic to the seriousness I just described. So, with that stated, I will conclude with this image of one of my old buddies who didn’t find what he was looking for at the time, but has never been deterred from continuing to look beyond the obvious. Eventually, his persistence paid off, along with a change of scenery (or routine). This, I believe, is the answer I discovered in the process.
