Arrival by janetb


As always, we heard them the day before we saw them; and the arrival of Baltimore Orioles thrills every spring! We saw the first at the feeder early this morning, and I already replaced the orange after these hungry migrants devoured the first one lickety split. Two males chased each other aggressively throughout this rainy day; and after dinner, we watched a male and female courting and taking turns eating peanuts! When the steady rain ended, the sun's golden light felt especially magical as Mike and I stood on the deck enjoying the sights and sounds of these beautiful birds.

I praise you, Lord, for the arrival of the breathtakingly beautiful Baltimore Orioles.

How exciting the visit siting!! I have them only for a few hours, as they pass through onto more preferable places.

Janet I love the lighting in this and the overall composition. Another truly beautiful moment you have captured here, both in words and visually. Now I am split between wanting to see how you end your project tomorrow and not wanting it to end at all :)
