So many sunflowers...

...so little time.  A tiny chickadee seems puzzled as to where to begin.

I love sunflowers. They are just a happy flower. Or I've seen that sunflower happy face thing too many times since the 70's.

Ellie said...

What a cute little bird, you just about miss seeing him in amongst all the flowers. Sunflowers are great, I always think of them as big happy flowers. lol

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Pretty...and even more so in the sunlight! :)

We had Chestnut-backed Chickadees at our previous home. Neat little guys who I eventually was able to get them to eat out of my hand. I haven't seen any at our new home. I guess yours is the Carolina Chickadee?

An overwhelming job ahead for that poor little bird (I never have understood how they survive as they spend so much time darting here and there and back and forth)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

YUM.... So many choices!!! It's like me sitting in an Ice Cream Parlor--trying to pick a flavor... ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Debbie said...

Sharon said...

Lucky little guy, I am sure some of the flowers may have dried up before they had a chance to develop seed.

Evelyn S. said...

Oh, it's a buffet! ;-) I don't believe I've seen small sunflowers like those.

I have never seen sunflowers like these but I am surrounded by fields of big sunflowers that will soon be blossoming and I can't to photograph them!

The Chickadees are sure fun little guys to have around the yard. They flit here and there, singing all the while.

Roan said...

I think he is in bird heaven.

pattisjarrett said...

If your chickadees are as feisty as ours, it's probably defending its territory, double-daring others to come closer.

A Quiet Corner said...

Talk about getting enough fiber!! That little guy must be full of you know what!....:)JP

Louise said...

Ah, the wee, small things! One of my very favorite birds.

Debbie @ Swampbilly Ranch said...

Sunflowers and a chickadee. I think that could be an old song. Or a poem. Or a Hallmark card. Either way, it's very pretty.

rainfield61 said...

You can suggest to the chickadee tossing a coin should be a good idea.

Ms. Becky said...

Love how you caught a shot of the cute bird on the sunflowers!

Genie said...

Oh, so pretty, and I’m oh, so tired. In motel with 3 alarms set so we do not oversleep in the morning. Gotta get Buddy on the train at 5:45. He and the backpack (right a 20 pounds now) are ready. He’s snoring and I am playing on the computer trying not to fret and worry about him. Hope all is well. Glad you got a chuckle out of the squash. Genie

Linda R. said...
