Wonder of the Small

Lazuli bunting

Living in the moment »Buy This Photo!«

The lazuli bunting is such a little bird, smaller than a sparrow, smaller than an indigo bunting (which we also see)—but they’re so beautiful, I have to pay attention, and when I can, I take another picture. It’s just one of those things, like rainbows. What kind of an idiot doesn’t take a picture of a perfect rainbow? Neither can I resist cropping the resulting image to get in closer, to examine what might otherwise be overlooked. The original of this one shows a lot more of the tall grass around my homemade feeder—really just a piece of plywood laid across one of those alleged whisky barrels sawed in half—but once I’ve zoomed in, there’s no going back! Too bad, because the wide view is pretty damn slick as well.

    I love the details. So often the whole world is in the details … as you say, too often these are overlooked.
