Today was a birds and blossoms day.
It was raining all day, so I reminded myself that I had to grab some photos of the apple tree blossoms before the rain and wind blew them away until next spring.
So my goal for the day was to go and get some birds, especially if they were sitting in the apple trees.
Here are the birds I captured today:
I love the doves!:
The Blue Jay looks regal in the tree, doesn't he?:
Does anyone know what bird this is?:
He didn't seem to mind the pouring rain!:
And then we went into town. Since my last awful blunder (when I missed all those wonderful pictures because the battery pack was missing from my camera), I was dang sure to check it before we left for town today!
He was practically in the same exact spot!!!!!
I assured him I had them, and then he asked, "How about my other side profile? Did you get it?
Even though there are a few raindrops on my lens when I took his picture, I was thrilled to get these shots. They aren't crystal clear due to the hard rain at the time (and drops on my lens) but I thanked him profusely for showing up again.
