A little while back I told you about our House Finch nest and that we have egg-citing news! Honestly, I haven’t looked lately because I pass under it everyday and it has been so quiet up there. But just today I notices an extreme amount of poop around the perimeter of the nest, so I went and grabbed the step ladder and this is what I saw! Lots of wispy feathers and 3 yellow beaks! That makes three baby birds. They must have hatched a while ago because they are so much bigger than their eggs. They just about fit in that nest. Congratulations Mama and Papa House Finch! I am sure they have their own names but since we don’t speak Finch I have given them English names. Introducing, counterclockwise from the top: Inch, Pinch, and Surprise (since we didn’t know about this one).
I recently reset my computer’s desktop background to a default image from my computer. I was a black and white negative of a leaf.
It is a neat affect because it causes you to look at something potentially very familiar a little differently. I have been meaning to try this photographic affect and here are a couple of my first attempts.
The pictures are of the tops of ornamental grass; maybe a seed pod that has opened up. They look like half hearts.
