Just me and the robin, sheltering.


Out walking the other day, it started to rain, so I decided to take shelter under the cover of some trees at the side of the Lake. A second or two later, I was joined by this chap or chappess. The photo makes the robin seem further away than in real life. S(he) graciously posed for a couple of photos, after thoughtfully allowing me the time to retrieve my mobile phone! Birds tend to fly away at the slightest movement, but not this one!

The rains cleared, and all of the other birds started chirping again, which was our cue to move on from our shared moment together.

Until next time, that is!

      I like to think that it was, Elaine. A lot of the birds are very friendly around the Lake, however! 🙂

      Oh indeed, VK! 🙂
      I always say hello to them at least, if they’re close enough to hear!

        I was sad this summer when my Phoebe bird never returned! Every summer she would place her nest up near the roof and sit in the lilac tree outside the living room window. We would actually talk to one another, back and forth. I guess they get old and die like we do. I miss her… Happy bird chatting…VK

    I think the robin sensed a peaceful, welcoming spirit in you, and knew all was well. Sweet!🌷
