This is what my world looked like out my bedroom window early Sunday morning. I woke to the rain gently falling. It’s such a nice sound to wake up to sometimes.
It was warm enough to have had the windows open through the night and I walked over and looked out. There were birds all over the dogwood tree and at the feeder. I had an idea and raised the screen all the way up which, of course, made the birds all fly away. But I knew they’d be back.
Then I went downstairs to get coffee. I love coffee. Love how it smells, how it tastes with a bit of half & half, love the warmth of the mug in my hands . . . love.
And by the time I headed back upstairs, over 10 minutes had gone by and I was prepared with my camera and a couple of lenses.
The birds had begun to come back to the tree.
However, the only clear shot I could get was this little white-throated sparrow who was waiting his turn at the feeder.
Oh, why hello there.
I love Sunday mornings.
