I’m sorry I’ve been out of the loop on our spring collaboration.
I hurt my back (it didn’t actually impair my ability to look for spring OR lift a camera);
I got a vicious head-cold (almost went to the doctor after coughing up brown goo–I feel better now);
My baby got a lighter version of the cold (a slight fever and a lot of clinginess);
My dog and I went to stay with friends while Zach painted the great room, living room, entryway, upstairs landing, and stairs (the dog went on two walks a day–something he hasn’t gotten to do since the baby came);
then my battery died in my camera.
But finally the stars aligned and I happened to have the camera with me, fully charged, when I spotted the chubbiest robin I’ve ever seen. I wish I had a telephoto lens but, even blurry, I’m sure you can tell that this robin is well fed this year. Despite prolonged storms and bluster, spring is HERE.
