I didn't know those little critters would stay still long enough for an unblurred photo!


WOMAN IN THE SCARLET COAT

Woman in the scarlet coat,
Are you heading for a boat?
Or perhaps you need a bus
To get far away from us.
Whether wheels or sails you take
Don’t forget the chocolate cake
To sustain you on your way;
Red-clad damsel, now we say,
“Go with grace, enjoy the ride,
See you on the other side!”

Beautifully done.

Ralph said...

This diminutive avian sits just still enough for your capture - and a stunner it is! She sits gingerly on the smallest of sprouts and is steady. The view is a proud bird, that looks good - and knows it!

Rose said...
