You Can Call Me Flower If You Want To

Yesterday was a dreary, drizzly kind of day, but in the late afternoon the clouds parted and the sun popped out in all its brilliance.  This pinkish-purple Peony looked so vibrant, still dripping with raindrops, that I had to grab my camera and snap a photo or two.

As I was busy taking Peony pictures, I saw (or rather heard) this baby Mockingbird nestled in the Cyprus.  He seemed like he was begging to have his picture taken (although he was probably begging for more of the Bark Butter that his parents have been busy delivering all week!) and as I shifted my focus from the flower to this little fellow, the classic line from Bambi floated through my head – “You can call me flower if you want to.”

I didn’t stick around long, as Mama seemed agitated by my getting too close to junior and I didn’t want to be the recipient of her anger; I’ve witnessed first hand how she can peck the heck out of a crow!  So I fired off a few quick shots and then left them in peace.

It doesn’t look like it will be long before this little one is making visits to the backyard on his own.  Stay tuned for more baby pictures!
