Robin in the Sunlight

This picture was taken in Erie Cemetery in late May.  The robin was keeping an eye on me but she wasn’t very afraid of me.  I like how she’s walking in the strip of sunshine with the darker shadows just behind her and on her back.  There were quite a few robins in the cemetery that day.  There are a lot of trees, bushes and shrubs in this cemetery and it is an inviting place for the robins.  Robins in the cemetery lend an aspect of life to the somber quietness of the grave sites.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    It always makes me happy to see a robin with its red breast and promise of spring.

    There were so many robins around me that day and they were so at home. They stayed their distance from me, but they didn’t seem to be afraid of me. They are a cheerful little bird. Thanks for your comment, Lorraine.
