Can You See What I See

Hello Friends.

Yesterday evening MOM and I were doing some relaxing on the patio just taking in the the day and unwinding from a super long day (Well long for my MOM.  She cooked lunch and dinner at the homeless shelter and had to do a funeral in between the two meals. I just kicked back at Bert's).  We were listening to all the birdies in our trees and bushes and then we noticed this.

Isn't that just beautiful?  It always makes my MOM smile.  She always thinks of the promise made and the promise always kept.

Then I noticed something beautiful at the far end of my back yard.  Do you see it?  It's RIGHT THERE!  You still don't see it?

Here follow me.  I'll get you closer.

Now do you see them?  It's a Quail couple.  

This is the girl Quail.  She is so beautiful.

And this is her main squeeze.  WOW check out his feather-do.  
I got about 15 feet away from them and just watched.  I think that thing on his head hypnotized me.

After they left I sniffed around where they were.

"MOM, MOM, did you see them?  Did you take their picture?"
WOW a rainbow and quail all in the same day.  Well all I can say is  BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL.
Special Program Note: Please Please come back tomorrow.  I have some incredible news about our Golden Boy, Bert.
