Dark-eyed Junco - Blowing in the Wind


Don't ever save anything for a special occasion. Being alive is the special occasion.

About the image: I always seem to give "my" birds human characteristics. This one reminded me of the famous Marilyn Monroe image with the white dress blowing.
Izaak Walton Park, Christiansburg, Virginia.

About the quote: It doesn't really have anything to do with the image - but reminds me that each day we live on this wonderful planet is a blessing!

Sweet photo. We have the Black Phoebe here which looks very similar to your Junco. I've never seen one in a dress though:-)

Wow, you have some wonderful photos! I just enjoyed looking back thru some of them. Very nice. I love this one particularly ~ great capture of the feathers in the wind. I've never seen them so fluffy.

Barb said...

Great pic. Is that an adult Junco or is it still wearing 'baby fluff'?

Amazing blog - I think I have to be your newest follower :)
