In six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed... Exodus 31:17

The Indigo Bunting
Known as a winner..
Oft' moved heaven
And scoured the earth
In his diligent search
When it came to hunting;
But on August seven
He was hard pressed
To seek and obtain,
A good dinner,
In torrential rain...
He stopped and rested
On the hummingbird feeder.
Life got so much sweeter.
He soon was refreshed
And thoroughly impressed
By what to select there...
Sipping the fine nectar.
He promptly fell in love....
Music filled his ear lobe
By the pelting rain
That continued to pour~
Dripping off the globe,
Plus a food chain
Diner hanging above...
He couldn't ask for more.
Poetry by me AJP

The Indigo bunting got soaked today in the rain and it was difficult to focus through the raindrops on the window..He has really acquired a liking to sugar water in the hummingbird feeder which on this shot is reflecting a distorted view of our house on the glass globe.

    A unique and beautiful pose for your indigo bunting. We rarely see those here. a couple of years ago a flock of males stopped in our area for about 10 days as they were migrating north. It was such a treat to see them all.
