If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

Dark-eyed Junco portrait
This Dark-eyed Junco visited me earlier in the week. It had been feeding off the ground in our back yard from food spilled by our bird feeder. I was surprised how unafraid it was. So naturally I went to get the camera and snap a shot of this friendly little one. I was able to get within a couple of feet or so with my zoom lens.
The Dark-eyed Junco is a genus of the American sparrows. Though these birds winters in much of the United States many enjoy the summer months in northern Canada and Alaska.
