Lucy, on alert. A squirrel, chipmunk, bird, toad may need to be chased.
Fitzi is very alert – anyone, anything , everyone, everything passing by our property gets his attention.
I got too close to this Barn Swallow’s nest for its comfort, so it repeatedly swooped to warn me away. The first several swoops were quite startling because it silently and rapidly flew directly at me from in front, from the side, from behind. Within only a few feet of me it veered away as it gave (what I presume is) its alarm cry.
I captured this image as it veered, only a little farther from me than my arm can reach. A beautiful bird.
Please accept my apologies for going dark for several days. Computer issues have kept me off line.
The Alert One ensures that all is in order.
Stella, the ever-vigilant one
