I really wish she could talk because I have so many questions for her.

What does she do up there all day to keep from getting bored?
And I wonder if she counts the cars that pass. And more importantly, I wonder if anyone even knows that she is there (besides me of course).
Why doesn’t she come down and take a bath in the river; it’s so close to where she is perched.
Does she appreciate my occasional visits, and does she worry when I haven’t been around for a while?

I had this theory that I would capture her true essence more accurately if I used a flash, so I gave it a try today. Do you think I revealed her true nature?
