What a fabulous photo ....
The baby Cactus Wren is so sweet and very fluffy.
My next post was of a bird eating the fruit of a Saguaro but not as close and charming as yours.

cheers, parsnip

Perfect hairdo for this baby wren! :-) I love it!

Allison said...

Oh no, this is just too good to be true! Can they really stand there and not get stuck? I am beginning to love your beloved Arizona, Diane. Cheers!

It always amazes me that birds perch atop everything, no matter how prickly. This photo is classic, I love it.

Oh My Goodness, Diane.... I love seeing that Mama Bird with her baby.... What a cutie... The baby looks like a ball of fluff.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wonderful capture!

I'd be all ruffly, too, perched up on that cactus. What a rude awakening for a young bird!
