I Wonder…

“We are perishing for lack of wonder, not lack of wonders.”
GK Chesteron

I’ve been sorting through the mammoth amount of pictures I’ve taken over the past week. I ‘m trying to go slowly and really look at them.  When I take the time to let their beauty sink in, I can’t help but feel a sense of wonder.

Here’s a few that caught my eye today.

Pine Warbler – female


Northern Mockingbird


Dark-eyed Junco


Eastern Bluebird (he simply insists on making an appearance in my posts!)

Pine Warbler – male


Yellow-rumped Warbler

And I couldn’t pick which Blue Jay picture I liked better, so I’m putting in two.



By the way, I was planning on sharing this quote even before my fellow blogger at “That Little Voice” asked me to participate in the “Three Day Quote Challenge.”  While I’m not technically joining the contest, I would recommend that you check out this witty woman’s blog.  She has a way with words!

    I love the beautiful colours of your birds Kathy the tri-colour of the bluebird, the lemon in the pine warbler, and the blue jay’s gorgeous patterns in shades of blue and white! Yes, it is true we need to seriously muse and wonder why we do not see the wonder in it all, for the wonders are everywhere they are the handiwork of one called Wonderful whom makes our life wonder full.

    These photos are fabulous! Do you use a special camera? I have tried endlessly to get good photos of birds at the feeder, but they are always blurry. This is my first time to see your blog. I learned about it from another blog I follow, createarteveryday.

      Ah…you popped over from Laura’s blog. Welcome! The camera I use is a Canon SX50HS (which is really just a powershot on steroids!) – and I love it. It has a lot of zoom. I pretty much just stand on my deck and take pictures of whichever birds show up!

    I agree Kathy! Looking at your bird photos always gives me a sense of wonder of God’s creations! 😊

  8. I can almost feel how soft your female Pine Warbler is! These are stunning captures, Kathy, love everyone of them. What wonderful gifts that grace your feeder! 🙂
