of models and fashion

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

(and bird-proof)

kitties on the block



with love,

  1. Kathie, I’m catching up (haven’t been online because my family was all home…), and what a lot there is to read and see. I’ll catch up gradually, but I’ll start by saying that these bird photos are just beautiful! I love your inner and outer eye. You seem to see beauty and goodness all around you, and your grateful spirit is refreshing.Susan


  2. Kathie, I just loved the photo op with Mr. Junco! He was such a good sport! I’ve been enjoying the juncos here lately too. They have such personality.Jody


  3. ah yes….the dark-eyed junco is a favorite kitty-snack around here too. m12 and i have spent plenty of time chasing cats away from the feeders and trying to save those little beauties. :)i love how the juncos have those white tail feathers they flash when they are darting around.great series of pics.


  4. I just love Juncos. We have them in abundance in our yard in the winter, but seem to disappear in the warm weather. They are regulars at the "free lunch" feeders.Cas
