Yesterday, I posted a capture that I was afraid would be my only sighting of a Baltimore Oriole in my yard. Fortunately, a got a second chance since they seem to like the feeders we have out. I am happy to have gotten a nice bird portrait. This was the result of two things, luck and patience.
Patience is a virtue. It is however, one that is learned and not one that just happens. Those who have no patience are often disappointed, angry or sad. To gain patience requires dealing with the same situations which annoy the impatient without getting bent out of shape.
Patience comes from exercise and anyone who works out alot knows that excercise is sometimes unpleasant or painful. Yet, no pain, no gain. So, I will continue to do my patience exercises. Going back to the window over and over, in hope that I will see something interesting. Many people would think this foolish behavior but I think the results are worth the effort.
