At End of Day III (Image & Poem) by 


Favs: 25 as of 1-24-13

I take a moment
At end of day
To praise your work
In my usual way.

I gaze in wonder
At all you’ve designed
Just for my pleasure
All so perfectly aligned.

I praise and I thank you
As I quietly pray.
In peaceful reflection
At end of day. . .

On my drive home from the Sage / Hemet area on 12/4/11 I saw a lone tree on a hill. The sun was just starting to set so I stopped to shoot some photos. Just as I was taking the first few photos, little birds started to fly into the tree. I was so thrilled, they just continued to flock into the tree by the hundreds. The tree ended up looking like it was covered in little leaves.

In the Temecula Valley area, Riverside County, CA, USA

    Such a striking image ….. the black and white is perfect for this, starkly accentuating the subject. Wonderful to have such co-operative birds as well :)

  • I was so happy when these little things started to flock into the tree… I had to shoot fast because they just came out nowhere…
    I’m glad you like the B&W… I think I like it best myself.
    Thank you Alenka :o)

    That’s an awful lot of birds Rhonda. I like the simple monochrome.

  • I agree, and they came all of a sudden. I have shots taken just a few moments before and the tree is bare.
    It really was a lot.. I was in awe… You can see the original HERE
    Thank you for stopping by…
