Look Closer

This large group of cattails was nothing extraordinary until I saw an adult bird make a landing into them. I stopped the car and saw that the parent was on a nest and the bald little head of a baby red winged blackbird could barely be seen. It was delightful to watch it for a while, at first looking upward with its’ mouth open in a beg for dinner.  When it rose up out of the nest though, I realized that I had interrupted prime feeding time.  Feeling a little guilty, I snapped a quick shot and was on my way.  This photo always reminds me that even though there is always a “bigger picture”, looking closely can definitely have its rewards!
