Selene, the Dawn Bluebird

Proud Selene and her tiny, sepia spotted eggs
I usually wake up when dawn breaks...even if I wished to sleep more it would be impossible as the bird songs at dawn are the loudest and most melodious throughout the day.
Selene is the first to break the silence... if I did not  know any better I'd say she stays up all night waiting for the first ray of sun to burst through the dark blues of the sky... Today though things were a little different, as Selene did not utter a tweet...Worried obviously by the overwhelming silence at daybreak, I rushed over to her nest to find her busily arranging her newly laid eggs with her beak and bursting with motherly pride...
