In the past week or so I've noticed a little bird hanging around outside of my workplace. When I first saw it, I thought maybe it had an injured wing because it hopped around and flew very awkwardly. Today, I saw it in a tree and discovered why it is so awkward. If you look closely, it appears to be blind. I didn't realize this until I got the image onto my computer screen. It's blindness would also explain why it is so scrawny.
The next bird flew into the same tree as the first one, just a few branches lower. This one flew more gracefully and appears to be healthy. It's certainly plumper than the the first one.
Now I have a moral dilemma. Should I try to feed the blind bird some cracker crumbs or should I just let nature take its course? I hate decisions like these!
After I tore myself away from the birds I wandered into the park and found lots of bees and several butterflies. I didn't realize the bee had gotten into this photo until I got it onto the computer.
