Pine Siskin – A Stroll Along A Path Of Jewels

A Stroll Along A Path Of Jewels

     I had intended mowing “the jungle” which was rapidly taking over the yard, but another rainy day put a hold on that activity. Instead, I grabbed a camera and lens and settled down on the porch. There I watched and imaged the seemingly never-ending parade of bird activity passing through this small part of the universe.

     Hours later, I reviewed what had been captured and this one was my favorite of the session … a Pine Siskin on one of our cherry trees. The small and spirited finch was in diligent quest of plant lice and mites. I especially liked the gem-like water droplets suspended from the stem, so I titled the shot A Stroll Along A Path Of Jewels.
