Well, it's Ruby Tuesday (hosted by Mary/the Teach at Work of the Poet) . I'm late posting again and struggling to force myself to do it. I had the photos mostly loaded yesterday afternoon but the will to post them and visit around not so much. My brother's death two weeks ago seems to be hitting me hard. I wish I could say I was grieving but mostly I'm tired and pissed off. Old wounds are gushing blood and venom at the moment and I'm not sure what to do with my feelings. Unfortunately when this happens I tend to just get tired and withdraw from even cyber contact.
Add to my mood that the weather has been horrible. Yesterday was the first day that it has been warm enough to leave the windows open and the chilly weather has been accompanied by gray skies for the most part. Sorry I'm whining. Lots of good things are happening in my life. It's against my code to feel sorry for myself, but here I am feeling sorry for myself.
I posted this guy before. I was so excited at having seen him that I totally forgot he'd be great for Ruby Tuesday. The picture isn't very good. The skies were gray and my windows are filthy, but he's a Pileated Woodpecker and I've never seen one before. I didn't know wood peckers could be so big. He's about the size of a crow.
It was cool to see the Flicker this close. Usually they hang out across the street and I can only get blurry far away photos. This little fellow hung out for a while on one of the few sunny days of the past couple of weeks.
That's it from me. Four blurry birds with a bit of red on them and two not blurry birds with a bit of red on them. Hope the sun is shining on your Tuesday.
