You never know what you’ll find in a flower pot

By Penny Stine

I was watering my flowerpots on Sunday with the irrigation hose, really drenching a couple of my biggest pots. After I soaked this pot with at least two inches of water and had moved on to more shallow pots, my husband told me there was a baby bird in the flower pot that couldn't seem to get out.

I hadn't seen it because the leaves are too thick and the bird is the color of shadows.


When I went to check on the bird's progress, he/she/it had managed to hop to the rim of the pot, but it didn't seem real inclined to go anywhere else. I wasn't using a particularly strong zoom to get this shot - the bird didn't act like it wanted to fly anywhere.

 

Maybe it's wings were waterlogged.
When I went out and checked a half hour later, the bird was gone. It made an unusual flower for a little while, but I hope it managed to fly away. There are plenty of cats in my neighborhood that would have thought this bird made a tasty snack.
