Parts of 2012 were for the birds.......
As everyone else, the New Year causes one to reflect on the past year
and muse on the upcoming one.
Like you, I had highlights and down parts of 2012, but I am
happy to say, the highlights outnumbered the downs.
And as far as "for the birds"? Well, I was honored
to see some to photograph...and
want to share these autumn bird shots with you today.
It is to wish you a Happy New Year...
one that I hope "takes flight" for you
and allows you to soar to the happiest year of your life yet.
Because remember....a lot of your friends and loved ones
did not get the privilege to see 2013.
We read on line that if you take a hollow log (or in our case a hollow piece of birch bark) and put seeds inside, the birds like it...as they will get out of the wind, snow and rain and go inside the log to eat.
Sometimes, they stand on top of it and act as the "look out"...
like this blue jay:
Or just OUTSIDE of it...
as the "look out":
This little Junco had the right idea...just crawl right in there and pig out!:
A male mallard in the golden fall leaves reflections:
A woodpecker having a feast:
I hope you feast on life as you enjoy 2013...
and that you spread your wings and soar this coming year....
don't be "the lookout".............
just fly, fly, fly!!!!!!
