I haven't been posting much lately because I have been holed up in my house avoiding the cold weather. But yesterday a friend asked me to walk their dog and it forced me to venture out and I realized that if I bundle up properly, it really is not going to kill me. So today, even though it was only in the 20s, I took a brisk walk around the neighborhood.
As I was walking I noticed several trees had dropped all their berries and the robins were having quite a feast. I stopped by the house to grab the camera and sat near the trees to try and photograph them. As I sat still waiting for the birds to get used to me, cars kept driving by asking if I was OK. They were probably thinking, "What kind of freak would sit out in twenty degree weather next to a pile of rotting berries?" After I reassured them I was OK they would drive away and the birds would slowly return and I thought, "If they only knew what they were missing they would be sitting next to me!"
