The sky has been overcast for the past several days, punctuated with frequent splatters of rain. Normally I am not a fan of wet weather (at least not if it lasts very long) but right now the beauty of autumn is bursting against such a dreary backdrop. I love how even the feathers of the birds seem to blend with the colors of fall.
Take for example this robust Robin. Doesn’t he look rather pumpkin-ish?
And when you look at this scattering of leaves…
you can see the golden tones of a Pine Warbler…
…and the hues of a House Finch…
…and the colors of a Cardinal too.
And tell me, doesn’t this Carolina Wren look just like an acorn with wings?
I guess there is beauty to be found even on the dreariest of days!

Beautiful captures of God’s gifts in nature, Kathy! And everybody is indeed wearing matching seasonal colors 🙂
Pretty sure my neighbors were wondering, “What’s she up to now?” as I was walking around in the rain, collecting leaves to photograph. 🙂
Good observation Kathy, yes I can see the colour match with the birds and the seasonal changes. Another beautiful post of your birds!:-)
