Finches and Bees

Today was a day for spotting finches and bees. I stood very still, longer than I usually do, longer than my ego wanted me to, and I finally saw that it was a finch rustling under a bush I was near. Once she was comfortable with me, she started calling to the other finches. Two boys stopped on nearby branches and one started talking back to her. They kept this up for a while. I had asked her to come out and meet me, and since she did, I thanked her. She seemed to say: "sure, no problem" in return.

Anytime I stopped around flowers, bumble bees were everywhere. They wouldn't show themselves if I walked by absent mindedly. They were the cute, fuzzy ones that are mostly black.
