Feather-like Tulip (Macro Monday)

The tulips have been absolutely stunning here this year. The colored tulips all having various shades throughout the bloom rather than the one block color. Simply glorious!

The background of this photograph has me more than a little intrigued as nowhere in this house is this color. Not that I’m complaining at all as it blends beautifully with my tulip!

Proudly wearing a ring of confidence (Feathered Friday)

For the previous two summers I’ve been referring to this bird as my Mourning Dove. However, looking up my handy-dandy bird book (yes, finally!) it says this is a Eurasian Collared Dove. To quote my teenage daughter… oooooo, fancy!

As we had so, so many birds visiting last month on their way to Alaska, Feathered Friday is currently dedicated to them and their safe travels!

And I was like… REALLY!?

Is it just me or should some animals really come with their very own word bubbles above them. This Thrush may have been small but exuded more than enough sass for the both of us!

Showing one’s true colors! (Macro Monday)

The cheeky Stella Jay birds enjoy sitting on the branches directly outside the kitchen window, taunting the cats with their closeness, safe in the knowledge the cats are unable to make contact.

The Stella’s also seem to know when I’m attempting to photograph them. Just when I have the photo set-up, boom, the birds move. That’s okay, I prefer their stunning blue color over their boisterous character anyways!

My wannabe Hummingbird (Feathered Friday)

This little guy was an equal-opportunity bird, dividing his time equally between long drinks from my Hummingbird feeder then snacking at my seed feeder nearby. What the?

If you know what he is please let me know. Initially I thought he was a finch but his beak, allowing him to guzzle sugar-water at the rate he did, has me now wondering otherwise!
