A Quiet Interlude




For a fleeting few seconds he pauses,
Observing his world.
I do, too.
Shouldn't we all once in awhile?

What a cute little bird! Is it a quail?

We all should indeed Sally! Such a beautiful picture.

I just caught up on your last five posts again -- mesmerized by Mt Baker -- and every post really!

As soon as your blog name officially changes I am going to add you to my Google Reader list, so that I will definitely visit you every time you have a new post. LIfe on the chicken dance ranch (and elsewhere) is too good to miss!

And birding is a great way to slow down and practice patience. Must be cold as that quail is all puffed up. Like the ones I see in the mornings.

Sally in WA said...

@EG Wow - yes it is a quail.
@Geogypsy - oh boy was it ever cold! That was during Thanksgiving week were temps hit zero, not counting the wind chill.

Evelyn said...

Yes, we definitely should. What a beautiful shot.

Dimple said...

I love this shot, and I agree we all should take time to pause.
Thanks for the visit!
