Would You Care For a Blossom? by 


House finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) have a taste for flower nectar. The male in the image has plucked a cherry blossom and will crush it in its beak to squeeze out the nectar. These birds spend much time among the clouds of cherry tree blooms, and chomp through the pink flowers as if they were candy.

I am a natural historian and published author, illustrator and photographer. I also take photography commissions and have had a wonderful time with a recent project for the University of British Columbia Farm. Many thanks for visiting my little space here on RedBubble, and thank you also for your purchases—they are very much appreciated.
