New in my Etsy Shop! Tufted Titmouse Trio

As most of you know, birds and birdwatching are some of my very favorite things. All my life, birds have been a sort of companion to me, always nearby, making me feel less alone and hopeful in the tough times, and lifting my spirits even more when I am happy. To me, there is something almost unearthly about their gentleness, one of God's greatest gifts. They amaze me with their beauty, agility and tenacity. They are incredibly strong and amazingly fragile at the same time. As someone who is naturally drawn to the tiny details, birdwatching is perfect for me. And photographing birds was just the next step in appreciating and trying to capture a little of that ethereal beauty to keep.


I have had these photographs for quite a few years, and have been tossing ideas around lately about how to group them together. I love this set, because it displays the feeding behavior so well (see that little seed he's holding between his tiny feet?), and also because the photos really show off this little guy's details, from his crest to the beautiful rosy color of his feathers under his wings. So, here it is, my Tufted Timouse Trio.....
