Birds and Moths and Flora

Hello to one and all! There is no particular theme or interesting writing on this post–I don’t have time for it presently! I only wish that you may derive some of the joy that I felt at some of these natural wonders. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in Comments:

About birdsandbenjamin

I am a resident of the North Carolina foothills and visitor to the mountains who finds great joy in observing and living with one of man's best friends, birds! I have limited photographic equipment, only a Nikon L810 and a pair of binoculars (for long-distance images). Nonetheless, I hope you see the heart behind the images and enjoy the beauty of birds on this blog.

    Thank you for sharing all those wondrous sights, Benjamin! Of course, my favorite has to be the wood thrush mama (not so much the baby cowbird she’s feeding though!). They are such shy birds that it’s difficult to capture them—you did well! I also liked the amazing illuminated spider web.
