  5. I think that is the wettest (is that a word??) bird I've ever seen! And I love that it's a robin. Great shots - you capture all the colors and activity so clearly, and also seem to capture their personalities!!

  15. omg these are awesome pictures. The detail is just beautiful. I always love your thoughts too. My husband is looking to taking a photography class. Did you take one? Also, what kind of camera do you have?
    I keep telling you this; you need to publish a book.
    Blessings!

  17. What a fun series. He really got into the feather cleaning. I like how fluffy and fuzzed up the feathers look.
