I’ve loved this song since forever and this particular version is amazing to hear and watch!
If you overslept, you’d miss waking up to this work of art! 😍
Daylight savings time
ended today – still I wake
to catch the sunrise.
All of these photos were taken today as the sun was rising over the Rocky Mountains.
inching towards spring
orange sky arrives early
longer days bring hope
Crackling sizzling fire
Sunday morning serenade
Basking in its warmth
On a crystal clear morning, with snow in unmelted patches, I saw a pair of Grosbeaks. Hiking with a birder friend who was more concerned with physical exertion than admiring our surroundings, she continued forward as I stopped to capture a few shots.
When we finally stopped for water and a rest, I showed the others my pictures. They couldn’t believe I was the only one who saw the birds. I’ve since learned about these birds, including a new word “frugivore” which means fruit eater. They do, however also eat seeds and feed spiders and insects to their young. Interesting that the adult birds don’t eat those things. It’s like fish sticks, Lucky Charms, and boxed macaroni and cheese – parents feed these to their children but don’t eat them as adults. If you’re still eating these things, that’s fine – I’m not judging.
