I’m hungry momma

While we have been anxiously awaiting the appearance of baby Bluebirds, many of the other residents have had their young flying around already.  A family of House Finches came in yesterday with their young.  This one was waiting near the feeder for its parents to bring food.  You could see the wing-flapping display that baby birds tend to do when ready to be fed.

It surprises me at how quickly the little ones get to be the same or nearly as big as the adults.  When you see them up-close, you can see how the feathers are not a smooth but at first, it is hard to tell the juveniles from the adults.  It is a wonderful rite of spring to see all the little ones out there!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
