Turdus Migratorius

That's me being channeled by an American Robin (turdus migratorius).
It's a tough job, singing all the notes - getting spring launched. So many rain-stippled puddles to monitor, blossoms to sift over baby goslings, midges to hatch, warblers to name, melodies to tease apart - the heart racing to keep apace. I'll be dragging back to reality when it's all over and pray that my solid friends and family have waited patiently for this little turdus to show a little consideration for less ephemeral, more sustaining things - like family and friends. Sorry.

What a neat picture. Nice capture.

Thanks, Anvil coud - You know how it is when every now and then you actually get the shutter to snap before the bird flies or a car inserts itself between you and your intention.

I'm all for getting 'lost', your way. Isn't nature a great escape!
