Wing Bones

Posted by PicasaMayapples are some of the strangest plants in the woods.  You can walk acres and acres of forest and see flowers and blooms and forgettable leaves, and then you come across a patch of Mayapples.  Their alien spaceship leaves and death ray flower seem to have a greater purpose.
     Grackles have never seemed the same to me after a summer day spent at my brother's house last year.  He had this big picture window looking out onto his yard and must have spent a good deal of time looking at the grackles gathering at his bird feeder.  His description of their metallic blue feathers, yellow eyes, and noble personalities has had me thinking twice every time I see them.  One of the grackles in this painting is pregnant, which has me wondering if you even can say a bird is pregnant.
