Do Not Walk In Front Of Me, I May Not Follow.

Just Walk Beside Me And Be My Friend Forever.........

As the darkness of night fades, the sun does shine and with its light comes a wonderful world of shadows.
One of my favorite things to do is to watch the birds at my feeders. I can see these feeders from my kitchen and living room windows, as well as from my patio door and my laundry room door. Some of the birds I can identify easily, but others are not as easy to determine. They move so quickly that it is hard to see all their features clearly.
So I began putting small amounts of seeds on the brick wall of my patio so that I can watch the birds up close. Not all of the birds will come to the patio wall. But, I enjoy watching the ones that will. Plus it gives me an opportunity to get better pictures of them.
I love the way they seem to be looking right at me at times. Like they are asking, "What are you doing"?
The other morning I noticed that the sun was shining on the brick wall.
I also noticed that as the birds were perched on the wall and feeding they were casting their shadows on the wall. Being a shadow seeker, I was thrilled!
The first shadow here is of a Cardinal and the second is a Finch.
This one is a Dark Eyed Junco.
The birds below the feeders were creating birdy shadows too!
Even the tree were the feeders hang was leaving its shadow.
It was a great morning for watching birds and finding shadows! I must say I am sure happy to see the sun too, we have had so much rain and storms lately the sun is a very welcomed sight.
