Ways to be more zealous
Where chickadee may tell us
What added to his powers
When perched on the trellis
Were happy sunny flowers
© Poetry by me AJP

We had not been seeing some of our regular birds around for awhile and the Chickadee has returned and also the White-breasted Nuthatch who are some of my favorite year around birds. I celebrated the occasion by adding some wild sunflowers (in photo shop) to the trellis that I photographed along the ditch banks yesterday. I thought it added more appeal to the picture of the Black Capped Chickadee along with the flowers rather than just the plain old wire trellis cutting into the center of the picture.....It filled in the empty space where needed..

However, It has given me an idea that I might try adding a few artificial flowers and wrap its stems around the trellis as the layered effect that I tried to do for this picture takes far too long... One idea sometimes leads to another...

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!
