hide and seek mockingbird




If you look closely, you'll see him.

Just the tip of his tail feathers, as he skims

under azure sky, over fuschia petals,

landing fearless

with flashing tail and warning chirrs.

Protecting his home, perhaps.

Inspiring joy,

certainly.

Beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen a mockingbird myself. I did spot the tailfeathers in the first photo, however!!

I had to lean close, but was so excited when I saw him! You're having fun, aren't you?
You're starting to tease like Susie does!
I'm sitting here beaming, friend.

This poem perfectly describes mocking birds. I love them. Well, they're my second favorite, litte wrens being my first.

Oh, I miss the song of the Mockingbird... we don't have them here. I think of them back home there, and recall their song in the evenings before the close of day... Such wonderful photos today, Leslie! Happy Week :o) ((HUGS))

Found your blog via Susan's. Read through a number of your recent posts and admired your photos - wonderful !

We're joining the snowbird crowd in Florida this winter - saw your alligator post and took note ;-)
