Sunday bird blogging

MOCK! (yeah!) KING! (yeah!) BIRD (yeah!) YEAH! (yeah!)
Now, everybody, have you heard, (have you heard?) he's gonna buy me a mockingbird....

Mockingbirds sound much more interesting than they look, but when they pause with their tails up as in the photo above, they look quite jaunty. Unfortunately, it's Murphy's law in bird photography that if a bird is in plain view doing something cute, the sun will be behind it. And if they move into the sun, they will no longer look so cute.

I adore your pictures -- whether of the patterned light on city buildings, or the quiet gorgeousness of birds -- and the eloquent, wise sensibility informing them.
Keep 'em coming, Kathleen!
