That's wonderful! Life at its beginning for these baby birds lets their eyes shut, sweetly dreaming of what sky?
Thank you for these delicate pictures.

formidable se qu il sont mignons et les oeuds sont bleux ?!?!

James Owens said...

Roxana: It is incomprehensible! How can this happen, from the egg, everything contained there in potential, growing and changing, unseen, in secret? I feel very lucky, being able to watch....


Anne: Yes, it is almost as if they are not quite really birds yet, some mysterious force still shaping them, carrying them closer each minute to this world....


Colleen: :-) I agree. I am stricken with awe.


Nefertiti: Oui, les oeufs sont bleus comme le ciel d’été. Ils sont des robins, des merles américains.

Quelles belles photos James !

James Owens said...

Susan: Indeed there are …. and this same drama is happening everywhere all around us, multiplied by the millions … too often, we don’t see….


Lady Jo: Ils sont très petits … mais pas faibles! Ils lèvent leurs têtes vers le ciel avec une sorte de férocité joyeuse…..

Cam: Hello. Welcome to the Klage-Welt! I do feel lucky, almost as if they chose me -- though I know better :-)
