One thought on “Animals

  1. The tree frog and blue jean poison dart frog are completely charming. The baby wren reminds me of a Cousin Greg story…Our neighbor breeds homing pigeons that wheel and circle overhead in the early mornings when he opens his barn door. One young bird with a lot of pin feathers (it looked very much like the wren in your photo) crash landed in our bunny play yard in front of your cousin (he was not quite four years old). He came running to inform me that a “space alien” had invaded, but not to worry because it was a “small and not dangerous kind of alien.” We returned the fledgling to our neighbor, to rejoin the flock after fluffing out a bit.
