Duty Theme #84

The male Eastern Phoebe doing his duty of watching over the female while she lines the nest with their down.  Isn’t he beautiful!

Chaos Theme #40

Posted in Photography on June 11, 2012 by paintedmeadows

What may look like chaos at first is the lovingly and patiently made nest of an Eastern Phoebe pair.  When you look at it closely you will see horse hair, moss, twigs, string, mud and what looks like a bit of my son’s lego.  They are now lining the nest with bits of their own down that they are plucking from their chests.  Since I can’t get outside my hubby is kindly letting them build their nest under our covered deck so that I can watch and photograph them through the hatch and maiden flight of their chicks.  Isn’t he the best husband ever?!!

Soft Theme #286

I love this photo of my sweet Barney.  I think the softness of the mood and the vignetting shows the softness of his soul in contrast to the strength and power of his body.

Ghostly Theme #131

OK.  I’m not sure what happened here except I took the photo through a window with raindrops on it.  Here is our “ghostly” Kuzco.  He is actually alive, not a ghost yet.  lol  Any ideas on why this happened to just Kuzco?  Everything else in the photo including Barney and Rosie (I cropped them out) was solid.
