Bonsai and Cici

the past few weeks we’ve had new visitors to the luxury suite, and frankly, they scare me. bonsai and cici {lovingly named by emily} have made our stairwell their home, and they don’t take kindly to people passing by. really, i think kamikaze might be a better name for bonsai – don’t let his beady eye and sweet little beak fool you…

but every once in a while, one of the birds {barn swallows} gets really brave and won’t move from their perch. i took the one below as i was walking back to the luxury suite and just happened to have my camera. i can’t believe how close he let me get to him. this was taken with my 24-70, at 70, and i couldn’t have been more than 3 feet away. thankfully, i still have both of my eyes!

    Interesting little plant seedlings growing out of the bottom of Bonzai’s nest. I could tell you stories of dare devil kamikaze barn swallows from my childhood years on Dad’s farm.
