July 10, 2012 – Stranded
First of all, this is not much of a picture – I think I have better picture for today – however, I think I would like the narrative better – so, I chose this picture.
I thought something was wrong with this baby bird – it perched on a forget-me-not in front of my door. As you can see, I was really really close to it – I don’t think I have ever been this close to a wild bird before. So, I was concerned maybe the bird was injured. Fortunately, after posing for the photos for several minutes, the baby bird decided that it’s time to take flight. It was flapping its wing clumsily but finally flew away to the crab apple tree above it. Bye bye birdie.
