On the vine at Lake Sumter Landing


I do not know the name of this bird. And he wouldn't tell me. But I took his picture anyway.

Carl! His name is Carl.

Jacob said...

@ B Squared - I don't know why, but for some reason I figured you'd know his name!

Jacob said...

@ VP - Thank you, sir. Coming from you, those words made my day!

Tricia said...

Oh great shot, Jacob! You couldn't have taken a better shot & sorry he wouldn't speak, but ya know how birds are, they're just so darn flighty! heheheheee

Tricia said...

B Squared seems to think his name is Carl, so maybe he got the low down on him!

"... time is an invisible fabric where it can embroider a flower, a bird, a castle, a tomb. It also can sew anything. Nothing over invisible is the most subtle work of this world, and perhaps the other. "
(Machado de Assis)

I know these words by Machado de Assis, are upset but in other way we can get the best part of our time, and we can see beauty and love if we really fell it inside our heart.
I'm trying to see beautiful birds, butterflies, "cats",colours and love around me everyday.
It's not easy to be always positive, but it's a good start! :)
Wonderful shot dear friend, congrats!
