It's a dark day on two fronts - last night the US electorate signed the death warrant for this country, and today the heavens are crying, at least here in Pennsylvania; it's raining as a cold front moves through. But in the midst of the dark Mama Gaia has revealed some beauty as a momentary solace. The overcast skies have brought out the Fall color, which I discovered while running an errand this morning, and when I got home I found that some infrequent visitors to my feeder station had made an appearance. A White-breasted Nuthatch flitted in and out, several Black-capped Chickadees were zipping around, and a Carolina Wren landed and stayed around for a little. The Nuthatch never did sit still long enough for me to get a decent shot, and although the Chickadees were hopping around quickly I managed to get a couple of half-decent shots. And that Wren!
I'm still mourning for my country, but at least Mama Gaia has shown that not everything went to hell last night.
