  1. Our backyard birds have dropped in numbers in the last few weeks. the migrants have either gone on or haven't started coming yet

  2. from the thumbnail, I thought it is Turkish coffee.
    This pattern is traditional Turkish coffee cup design.
    I like the mural and birds as well. You captured all birds in one frame with serene scene ..
    have a nice weekend.

    1. Feyza,
      it could have well been Turkish coffee! I honestly forgot which one I had had, too many coffees during my travels!
      Best regards,

  4. Oh Merisi, I do love your Frederick views. I hope that some day you might have a migration a bit further north along the Atlantic coast. We'd be sure to find a fine cup of coffee somewhere. Promise.

  5. Hi Merisi, Love your bird photography. I am wondering about the mallard picture. To me it looks like a wood duck with very distinct facial features but maybe mallards have that look in Europe? Enlighten me please. Google wood duck and see what I am talking about

    1. Jim,
      it was not the smartest idea to call this poor duck by any other name, I am sure you are right! My apologies,

  6. A double espresso (love the cup by the way) would certainly give me enough energy to take off flying like those birds! I wonder, should I give it a try? I might never come back to earth if I did, so I'll just use my imagination. That mural is wonderful, speaking of imagination - I love the duck and his shadow.
