you have a way of just making my heart happy!
I remember seeing painted buntings for the first time at a place I visited in Cristoval 2-3 years ago. But seeing them bathe - so cool! Some birds have been cooling off in my fountain daily, but each time, my camera was elsewhere...
What PRETTY little things they are! I actually knew just what these were, because my daughter and I read all about them in her 'My Big Backyard' magazine last week! I wish they did live in our backyard. . .
Beautiful, colourful little birds, they are very cute, I am pleased that they are enjoying your waterfall...I would have liked a cool dip in it a few months back too but it is very cold here today.Have a great weekend dear Kathleen!xoxoxo ♡
Wonderful! Beautiful little bird.
those little birds are so sweet and BEAUTIFUL. i love the moments you captured.
I LOVE your pictures....The digital age lets us share our joys with everyone. What FUN!
I've never seen a painted bunting before. How lovely. And he's obviously enjoyed a refreshing dip on a hot day :-)
"If you build it, they will come." That little guy is just wonderful. It must make Denny feel like King Kong to have built that waterfall (and I'll bet it's still right up there at the top of the best birthday presents you've ever received).
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
How the hell did people survive before AC. And do those little birds head off to someplace in the height of the Summer. Heck it's only May yet.
I've never seen one of those before. Marvelous colors.Cheers.
This made my day!
My favorite bird! I saw one fluffed up to twice its size in my bird bath last week, and almost didn't recognize it.
Love these birds! It warms my heart to see them come back to my yard too...Lovely pictures.
Kathleen, are you lucky or what?! Gorgeous pictures of gorgeous friends. Indeed, you have found a heavenly spot.
Wow! I think that's the most beautiful bird I've ever seen.Love you.SB
My readers are all geniuses. Can't wait to see what you have to say.
