When Life Hands You Lemons

Lesser Goldfinch

This little Lesser Goldfinch was chirping up a storm in this lemon tree. I thought it was so beautiful that the bright green tree was full of yellow lemons and goldfinches and I desperately tried to get a shot with the lemons in the background… but all I could get was that one little tiny lemon edge on the left.

Purple Pizzazz


So, I was thinking about titling this one ‘Magenta’ but I felt that there was another color that fit it better but I couldn’t pull the name off the top of my head. So I did what everyone does when they can’t remember something… I check Wikipedia. Shockingly there is an article titled, Shades of Magenta. And although it wasn’t the color that I was thinking of, Purple Pizzaz is definitely the best name out of all of the ones listed.

That Awkward Phase


This poor juvenile Anna’s is definitely in that awkward stage where the baby feathers have fallen out and the adult feathers haven’t quite filled in yet. We’ve all been there, right? When I was a teen I had braces, glasses, and bangs… so I fill this poor guy’s pain.
