“Look at the birds…”
We had just settled our chairs and tea things with a view across the lake when my friend grew animated. “There’s a green bird,” she said, looking into the thick carpet of green to the right of us. It took me a while to find it. Can you?
(It’s on the right-hand twig of cedar in the foreground.)
We realized, after watching it for a while, that it was a hummingbird. (It’s a lot easier to see in the photos than it was with the naked eye.)
That little bird kept flying away, but coming back to its twig. We watched it for about half an hour.
It had an iridescent green back and brilliant red throat which we glimpsed only when it turned just the right way. We think it was an Anna’s Hummingbird (perhaps a female or juvenile, as the males have red heads).
Beautiful birds always remind me that we too have a most adequate caregiver. Jesus said:
“Look at the birds, free and unfettered … careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds” – Matthew 6:26 Message.
After you’ve checked out the guidelines of this meme, why don’t you submit your photo too.
