Wonders

Wonders is a Father’s Day card with an adult and juvenile bird on a branch with the two of them sitting close. The text reads ‘Happy Father’s Day’.

The sub-text, and the reason the card is called Wonders is about the way we humans see parenting. One of the functions of a parent is to show the child the wonders of the world. And that is to use the word in the broadest sense. There is the exterior world of nature and science and the visual arts. Then there is the interior world created by literature and music. And all of these are needed. That is, person growing up needs to experience a balance between their inner universe and what is out there in the world.

Besides that the card shows the physical closeness of the two birds.  The young one is snuggled into the parent bird. Close bonding is a wonderful thing, but in the United Kingdom it might be construed as being too close. Depending upon the age of the youngster, it can be seen as being too close when it is between a son and a father.  But that is just not true in some other cultures. Therefore, there is no deeper meaning to be read into physical closeness. It is simply a sign of trust and safety, which is a precious commodity in this world.

European Bee-Eater

You might wonder exactly what bird it is. And the answer is that it is a composite of two or three bee-eaters. There is a cinnamon-chested bee-eater. But our bird has a cinnamon back. There is a European bee-eater, and ours are closer to that. The colours are approximately correct and in the right place. So we will settle on the European bee-eater, a beautiful bird. It is called a bee-eater because it pluck insects and suchlike out of the sky. That is, it perches on a branch, then springs up and grabs its lunch, and settles back down again on the branch. That makes it an easy bird to watch, doing its thing in one place.
