ADORABILITY 2.0

Little hopper wm (39 of 1)

I am in awe of these little jewels of the sky.

 

Add them to your list.

Doves…not always the first bird to come to mind when naming gorgeous birds. They  are, however, exquisite. Yes, they waddle, but when they fly they are the epitome of streamlined aircraft. Just look at the beauty of the wings, so many colors, highlights and shadows.

The male dove is also a romantic,a poet, irresistible as far as the ladies are concerned.

I adore you wm

If only they didn’t monopolize the bird feeder.

 

 

Winging it.

Isn’t this male bluebird pretty?

The beautiful wings are like a cape  and everything says, “elegant.”

Then we have the mourning dove, clumsy on the branch ,built like a tank, it’s wings are beautiful in flight. When I see it next to a bluebird, I wonder how it even gets off the ground, but the answer stares me right in the face. Look at those massive wings!

Two birds.

DSC_4510 Two birds

By my count, there are two birds in this image.

As Doctor Seuss would say’ish …

Not one, not three,

(Not fish they be.)

Not seven, eight,

(Not a dinner plate.)

Not four, not ten,

(Not rooster or hen.)

Not five, not six,

(Not fuzzy chicks.)

They’re just two birds, not more, not less,

(This post has just become a mess.)

The End.
