Camera-Critters #134


Due to experiencing a Fibromyalgia flare, which has me in constant pain and fatigue, I haven't been able to get out to get any new photos this week. Not only does the flare affect me physically, but it is affecting me emotionally too, as I am very angry and frustrated with my body which will not allow me to properly function as I normally would. Oh well, enough of the whining.

This is a photo of an Eastern Phoebe (if I'm correct in my identification). I think they are such pretty little birds. This one was nice enough to pause and pose for a portrait - Say that 10 times fast!

Buddy, I think you're gonna need some riding boots
if you get too close to those barbs!

birds are so quick and difficult to capture, you did a fabulous job getting this little one to pose for you.

SO sorry about your fibro-flare, Misty. I can sure empathize. I've had FM for a long time and have it more or less stabilized so I can function at half speed and with only a few muscle spasms amongst the generalized low-level pain. This may not sound so wonderful to people without chronic pain but it sure is an improvement in my case.
Meanwhile, I love your Phoebe. It's the sort of bird that makes me squeak, "Oh, look, look, look, how can anything ever be so cute?"
I figure if I can find joy in wildlife, little children, my dog's antics, and the people I love, I'm not so badly off as I sometimes feel I am.
