Wires, electrical or otherwise, have a lot of activity on them. And with so many birds flocking to these perches, dull moments are few and far between! It's time for a little romance for these love-birds... whereas for these two, time spent on the most happening perch is in--- companionable silence. belligerent? Taking a breather... contemplating the instant future?! tragic, an electrocuted bat...I happened to see it from the car, stopped and took this shot. I've never seen anything like this before. What can I say about this, except GO(ourd) FOR IT!!!!!
Glory be to God for dappled things- For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough; And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him. Gerard Manley Hopkins
The first flowering shrub I planted on our land
Every flower is a soul blooming in Nature.-Gerard De Nerval
Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself? -Henry David Thoreau
