Of Birds and Man “There is nothing in which the birds differ more from man than the way in which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before.” ~ Robert Lynd, The Blue Lion and Other Essays Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailPrintPinterestTumblrLike this:Like Loading...

Wonderful, beautiful, colorful photos of our feathered friends. Whenever I have found an abandoned or fallen nest, I love to look at it because it is so intricately woven. How they do it I will never understand but they amaze me with their skills every time. 🙂
The nest that the Hummingbirds built on the holiday light wire is still there, having survived the winter. I’m hoping against hope that they will return to it. Strong stuff!
I only hope National Geographic doesn’t see all these garden photos of yours . . . .or Homeward Bound might lose a wonderful photographer. I still say you should put together a beautiful Day Planner and sell it as a fundraising tool for the pups. I would be first in line to get one.
I only hope you don’t spend much time on National Geographic’s website! You’re too kind. Thank you!
As usual, gorgeous photos. The Day Planner idea is a great one Patti. Really, these beautiful photos need to be seen by more people. I love the way you capture nature and the human/animal subjects in it. You have such talent.
You two are hired! My new publicists. 🙂
Such a wonderful quote from Robert Lynd, and such beautiful photos by you! Our cedar waxwings put in an appearance this past weekend . . . a definite sign of spring, though they may have jumped the gun a bit as our temperature dropped from near 80 to below 40 from one day to the next. Mother Nature can be such a tease. 😉
