jelly belly

There is no secret about it: 
I- Love-Nature.  

Today is the online ArtSquared group reveal and the theme is nature.

The hardest part of this challenge was to decide what part of nature to create.

 I picked the 
Rose-breasted Grosbeak.
 Or affectionally called - Jelly Belly.
The Grosbeak come around in the thick of summer 
when the days are
and long.

Put out a cup of jelly and soon you will notice him visit.
He will bring his wife 
and kids too.

He lovingly shares his jelly with his family, 
but eats most of it himself.

And if you look closely at him when he is finished, you will notice jelly stains on his beak.
No time to clean as he has to get right to his music. 

The best part of the Grosbeak's visit is his sweet song.
He will sing for you well into the evening.
Happy Nature Watching!
