I often look out at the birds that come to my feeders and see the male house finches with their red highlights and think what a beautiful bird this is. The female is much less flashy. She doesn’t have the bright colors that the male sports but goes about her day with muted hues that don’t draw attention.
It is quite interesting however, to look at the patterns shown here. The stripes and textures that mark this often ignored visitor are beautiful in their own right. I guess this is another example of how we can miss out on the things that are right in front of us but which don’t scream for our attention. If we take a few minutes to appreciate what is given to us everyday to deepen your own experience.
