A one-way converstaion

 This warm morning, I sat in the gazebo reading a novel.
 Missy Goldfinch dropped in to visit.
 She was very talkative.
 "Really, you are reading?"
 "Abounding in nature, you choose to read?"
 "My beauty and conversation alone should entertain you...."
 "Wait a minute...."
 "Whoa, what is this intruder on my time with you?"
"You have other 'friends' ?"
 "Others who will eat my food?"
"Really, you allow these fakes in your life?"
 "Can YOUR little friend do this? Stand on his head and eat?"
 "You, my dear, surely must see my beauty"
 "My worth is 100 times more than that wooden fake."
 "I have grace, I have a voice."

She's a beauty. I hope she doesn't get her feathers all ruffled and keeps coming to visit!

A delightful way of showing the beauty of life... and observation is key!

Very fun series of photos here. I like these birds as well....it must be the yellow along with their singing. :)

P.S. Easy: we booked a room on the top floor in the village center. :-)

Really clever--it's a game I must confess I've played with finches. Nice job of make pics and dialogue fit each other.
