eastern kingbird


eastern kingbird sits
atop a barbed wire fence- waiting,
tuxedo fitted

Hope everyone has a safe but wonderful Fourth of July.

That's a beautiful little bird and I also like your praying mantis shots a lot.

Our kingbird didn't come back this year, and I even put up some posts for him to sit on. Yours is pretty.

Love the touch of the tux :-)

He'd better land on exactly the right spot on that fence - it looks dangerous! I hope you had a nice 4th of July.

Thank you, Naquillity, for your recent comments on my WILD blog.

Have just come back from Scotland, where I fell, injuring my left [dominant] arm... so am typing this one-handed. Waiting for the fracture clinic to say if broken or just bruised...

Love the smart bird - a new one for me. Have no idea if they ever come to the UK...

Hope you had good 4 July celebrations!
