The tenderness in this little bluebird mama’s face as she watches at the doorway for hubby’s return with grub for their babies speaks to me of Mother Love, one of the most sublime forces on the planet. But her gentleness is only one facet of her nature. Not only does she nurture the little ones in the nest while waiting patiently for her mate, but she also emerges as a fierce huntress, going out into the world and bringing back to the nestlings grasshoppers, crickets, worms, and whatever sustenance she can find for her growing brood. Mother Love is tender but tough, gentle yet strong, hovering close to the “home fires” but speading her wings and facing the dangers of the outside world, too.

    This is such an exhausting time for birds, but every day from dawn to night, they toil & labour for their babies.
    Lovely shot, Bonnie
