It's My Worm
no, you can't have it

I've been feeding the birds at my folks' house while in town, and so would like to post a few more photos beyond what I included in earlier posts (here and here).

A lot of birds come by, but these photos are mostly bluebirds.

After seeing the very first image, I thought if the Cheetos were being fed to birds. ;-O

The “Wing Detail” one is really lovely.

Absolutely lovely photos! I love the perspective, almost as though the viewer is feeding them ourselves.
Gorgeous captures, superb details!
New follower of your blog, and I will certainly check back in soon.

Thanks for the share! I especially like the wing spreads, though I’m jealous that you’re able to get them near you so easily.
