This adorable little Black-throated Green Warbler took a brief break in his migration the other day, right around the time the blossoms emerged on the flowering crabapple tree. I love spring! I just wish it lasted longer.
I’m back! I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus. I was enjoying summer, then was on vacation in Nova Scotia, and all of a sudden it’s October! In between all of that I took on a commission to do three mini 4X4″ collages. Thankfully, my friend and client was understanding, because these seemed to take me forever to do! I had already done a summery flower collage, and she wanted three more to represent the other seasons.
I decided on a cardinal for winter and a blue jay for fall. Spring was a trio of tulips. (They started out as daffodils, but I couldn’t get them to look daffodilly enough!)
I’ve only seen this elusive little bird twice in my life, and for only a few seconds each. This is an Indigo Bunting, a tiny brilliant blue bird about the size of a sparrow, or smaller. The first time I saw it was when I was very young, at Rondeau Provincial Park in Ontario. The second time, was a few years ago in my backyard, perched on the fence around our pool and just long enough for me to say, “Oh!” and he was gone.
He’s another contender for the Twitter Art Exhibit. I like this little guy so much, I think I’ll do him again in collage and in a different setting. Stay tuned!
