A Whole Lotta’ Somethin’ – on Day 5

It was cold out.

Cold, gray, and that “Cape Cod raw” like you read about.

And when I headed out on my walk, I thought there would be nothing going on in the marsh to see…

When — there he was!


Standing alone, out in the middle of the marsh.


As blue as I’ve ever seen a Great Blue Heron look!

I got a bit distracted when I heard tiny little peeps calling to me from the bushes along the marsh.

Why, it was a charming pair of House Sparrows, popping up to say, “Hello”!


Just then, I noticed how beautiful the cat o’nine tails looked right in front of me, just ripening and ready to burst.


‘Funny, how quickly I had gone from thinking there’d be a whole lotta’ nothin’ to see out in the marsh that morning…

To realizing, once again, like so many times before…


That there’s always a whole lotta’ somethin’ out there to see and hear.

If you just stop.

Breathe.

And look.   ❤

The Sparrow with the Arrow

I’ve been wondering lately, what IS it about me and the birds?

Every chance I get, I am out with them.

Following these amazing fellow creatures of wings and bills with so much beauty, so much heart.

Yet lately I’ve been questioning all the TIME I am putting into it – not to mention the memory cards.  😉

Then this morning, I came upon a tiny Song Sparrow in the road.


I was actually on the other side of him at first, with the arrow pointing towards me.

I walked past the sparrow, and he didn’t move.

He was just standing there. Looking at me, beside the arrow.

Except now the arrow was pointing the other way, and he was in front of it.


It was almost as if this little bird was trying to tell me something.

Follow me, follow me, come this way, THIS way.

And it was clear he wasn’t going to take “No” for an answer.   😉


So crazy or not, at least for now, it looks like I’ll be following the birds.

Photographing this little guy, and so many others.

For moments like these. ❤
