I was taking pictures at the bird-feeding tree the other day.
and I noticed a new visitor.
Mr. Dark-eyed Junco.
I was trying to be as inconspicuous as possible
so he wouldn’t fly off like some of the more timid feeders.
But after awhile, I noticed that Mr Dark-eyed didn’t seem to mind me at all.
So, I moved in closer.
He cocked his head to the left, as if to say “Try me from this angle.”
Then to the right – with the “gazing into the future” look.
How about the shy, downward glance?
Next, a completely different pose,
featuring the handsome wing and tail feather attire.
Definitely his best side.
I thought the photo op was over
he turned to look at me as if to say
“Wait! One more! “
Very stylish, don’t you think?
I think my little junco friend was prepared to model all day long
I finally had to end the session by shooing him off.
I wasn’t the only interested observer around.
Speaking of models and fashions and such,
I think I had better go shopping for Lily and little Jack
I’m drawn to “tickled pink” and “muddy paws”
They will look be the most fashionable
kitties on the block
