“can best be forgotten in the beauty of nature.” ~ Mehmet Murat ildan
When admiring the beauty of East Africa’s aptly named Superb Starling, it is easy to miss the tangled sharp barbs of the Whistling Thorn in which it perches.

Very thoughtful! I like the combination of the picture and the words.
Have a great day,
Thanks, you have a nice day, too. It’s snowing here…another case of the beauty of the white snow helping us forget the drab dreariness of winter!
It’s overcast and drizzling here.
We’ll be happy to send some freezing temps your way…!
Starlings can be disagreeable birds; but this one is so beautiful! And takes the thorns totally in stride!
You’re right. These gave me a new appreciation of a bird that I generally don’t speak well of!
