I had to interrupt the Atlanta photos with these pictures I snapped of Mama Wren and her brood. They are a little soft looking because I have to take the photos through the glass door. Do you see the worm in her beak?
And the babies huge open beaks in the nest? You can click on the photos for a much larger version.
And off she flies again... I have counted at least three babies! Whenever I open the front door, they start crying for food. So cute!! The chickadees are also busy in the former bluebird house, coming and going constantly - those bird parents work hard!
Then today I discovered this! A big nest over our back porch which makes for a big pile of bird droppings. I'm not sure if I'm happy about this. And I wonder what birds are nesting there...
And .... drum roll please ... our voodoo lily is getting a flower. Here again, I'm not sure if I'm happy about this. It'll be great to document and see, but after reading other people's descriptions of the incredible stench of the flower, I don't know... I guess we'll see (and smell)!
I have so much to share with you, but drawing class is keeping me busy! We are now working on values and shading and another big, BIG project! And I still have to draw eight sketches tonight. Better get busy...
I hope you are all doing well and that none of you were affected by those terrible storms that don't seem to stop... Stay dry and safe!
