“If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers.”
― Maya Angelou
I posted a nuthatch image a few weeks ago bt could not resist this one, sitting at my impromptu feeder (the base of a flower pot).
Birds have been very active lately and I’ve started to put seeds out on a regular basis for them, between squirrel invasions 😦
It’s odd for me, seeing a nuthatch sitting like this. When I see them in the forest, they are always hanging upside down, as the walk up and down the tree trunks in search of food, and I wonder if it feels odd to them to be right side up?
Anyways, this one sat still for me for a few seconds before darting off again and the soft light was just right to light him up. There’s a beautiful reflection in his eye and he does seem to have a mischievous smile, thus the title of the image.
