It's a Long Way Down.



They've all flown now and won't be back until next year but earlier this summer this fledgling Purple Martin was less than impressed with the prospect of taking her maiden flight. Despite repeated coaxing from both parents she was very hesitant about launching herself from on high. She kept looking at them and then looking at the distance to ground and she just didn't want to take flight.

I think he did Eileen. Hopefully he will return again next year :)
