“If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come.”
~ Chinese Proverb
I am blessed to enjoy the visits of a friendly little sunbird that flutters up against my kitchen window early in the mornings. Flies and gnats that have gathered there are quickly devoured giving him strength for the coming day.
Tiny wings beat so fast they appear to be just a blur of movement through the windows glass pane. He suddenly disappears….. just as quickly as he appeared, he departs, onto his next serving of breakfast.
I was lucky enough to capture this little fellow in a friend’s garden. Although not ‘my’ wee sunbird, he was just as charming and very considerate to sit still long enough for me to get this shot.
