I promise you, I didn’t use photoshop to put this bird’s head on it’s body backwards.
I’m not sure if I’d like having the ability to turn my head around this far! I’m sure that for a bird it’s a great plus for keeping an eye out for predators, but I generally don’t have that problem.
Trying to photograph butterflies through a window while they flutter their way above the grass doesn’t yield the sharpest images. Sharp images aside, it was a joy to capture the duo dancing together.
Somehow I managed to focus and noticed the arrival of a goldfinch…as it turned out the bird on the branch was…the mother and the incoming bird was one of it’s “babies”.
Soon two more “babies” arrived and one exhibited wing flapping behavior…usually this is a little one begging mom for food.
Sure enough…mom produced a tasty morsel and popped it into the little mouth.
One of the other babies jumped in and asked mom to open wide, hoping for a nibble.
There’s always someone who isn’t willing to patiently wait, to say the least. I think sitting on mom’s tail feathers is a really pushy move.
So there you have it…a mom teaching her babies where food can be found, while at the same time, continuing to feed them until they can do it for themselves.
My first name is HELLO
My middle name is YELLOW
I’m really laid back
So I’m very sure that
You guessed that my last name is MELLOW
Perhaps no one looked…with wire in the glass panes and the glass frosted, how could they?
