Simply Divine

This evening,  I was sorting through some pictures I had taken throughout the week and I came across this young male Red-winged Blackbird who had stopped in for a drink at the fountain.


The design on his back feathers caught my attention and I found myself thinking, “That pattern is simply divine.”  Then I smiled and thought, “No, that pattern is simply Divine.”


It reminds me of drawing with chalk on black construction paper.
This fellow is handsome now, but he will be stunning when he reaches adulthood.

      He is one that is easy to overlook, but stunning if you really stop and notice. I actually thought of you when I saw his back…I thought, “I’ll bet Jill could do something artsy with this guy.”

    Such an intricate pattern! I hope he pays you a visit again when he is an adult, I’d love to see what it looks like then.
