See the bird in this image? Okay, so it's not the greatest photo ever taken, but I was using an iphone, so you must bear with me. Okay, now look again: see the bird in this image!?! Yes, there he is! Is he not great or what? My husband and I decided to take some days off and tour the beautiful state of Colorado. At this particular, seemingly secluded spot, we stopped to enjoy the panoramic vista that begged our attention. Suddenly, to the side of me, I heard rustling. Now, notice the thicket at the left hand side of the photo? Well, to my delight this gorgeous bird was perched deep inside that thicket, staring at us, then turning his head in curious wonder across the vista, as if he couldn't decide what or who held us spellbound. My breath was taken away by the magnificent beauty of this creature. (Okay, trust me on this one, the picture does not do him justice.) As if on cue, he sensed my delight, thrust out his chest and ruffled his feathers, turning around in the thicket as if he hoped to divert our delighted "oooh's and ahhh's" from the ho-hum mountains and valleys to the stunning beauty that he knew he was. Well, he sold me. "Oh my gosh!" I squealed (quietly) to my husband, "look at that magnificent bird! Oh, he is gorgeous!" My husband, craning his neck to see, answered, "Where?" "In that thicket! See that deep blue bird? Right there!" I whispered.
