caught in the rain

By dawnmichelle
Thanks for the C+C's on the last up.. just took a chance to see if it would let me upload again and well it here is a picture of today's bluebird who waited out the rain and it was so cold out.. didn't want to be him for sure. You can even see the rain on him.
I didn't do anything but still feel run down..go figure .
As you will see in V2 why you don't get to see the other eye... he kept it closed the whole time like it was hurt or froze shut .. Didn't put the images up in no special order. They were taken through the window. So focus may not be perfect, still thought they were good enough to show .
Thanks for looking

Will try to get caught up even if it is just a click.. thanks for the continued understanding.

Hope your doing well..
Keep each other in your thought/prayers
