Every so often I post close up photo of something I have seen lately. I put that photo at the top of my post, I post the full photo of the last close up at the bottom of the post. Here is this weeks photo… Guess what this is!

The answer to the last post is…

Graham cracker crust in the making

You know you sometimes if you look at things to closely it is really hard to figure out what they are, but then again if you only look at things from a distance, you can miss the important and interesting details. It is also often easy to get swayed by what someone else thinks/guesses.

Running into a Brick Wall

Isn’t always a bad thing. This little mockingbird baby tried several times to get over the wall and never gave up. Guess he figured that if first you don’t succeed try, try again.

YIPPIE!!! Success. Once he made it to the top it didn’t take him long to decide to jump off the other side and explore the world outside my backyard.

This is one of the little birds that hatched from the nest in my rose tree.

Mockingbird eggs

This mockingbird and its partner made a nest in my rosebush. It was quite a surprise to see as I was trimming off the spent blooms. I snapped the photo below with my phone and have not bothered the nest since.

Such pretty eggs, such a nice nest. I know the eggs have hatched because I can hear the babies tweet. But the mockingbirds protect their nest something fierce so I have not even attempted to take any photos. I think it is more important for them to raise their young that for me to get a photo.
