A Beauty All Of Their Own.


My Little Prince came to visit me this evening – by himself I hasten to add. I wonder to myself if I will recognize him from the rest of the starlings that feed here when he is fully grown?

My unrequited love for the plain drab bird who will be plain no more. I took these photos tonight of him and a friend of his to which his dowdy feathers will become – midnight purples, greens and full of iridescence that shimmers and dabbed with snow white spots.

I almost cried when I re read this. I`m getting too soft in my old age - I`m far too much of a romantic.

Lovely piece of writing about what is, really, a beautiful bird to look at closely.
