Since living in Arizona I have come to love the cactus wrens......I call them all "Wrenny"

They are very smart and industrious......always busy, hopping here and there

They even build two nests, one to move into and one as a spare.........I guess to guard against predators

Currently there is a whole Wrenny family in my backyard......I interrupted this one in the middle of his tasks, but he just kept any eye on me and kept on working.

We sat and if for a dignitary to make an appearance. And then it showed up, bigger than life.

She climbed longer blushing.

From further away, she wasn't less astounding.....she still took our breath away.

Then she treated us with her shy reflection.......

Ah! Sunflowers

Ah Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun:
Seeking after that sweet golden clime

Where the travellers journey is done.
Where the Youth pined away with desire,

And the pale virgin shrouded in snow:
Arise from their graves and aspire,

Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.

Ah, Sunflower
William Blake

Thank you, neighbor Bob for letting me shoot your sunflowers....
