Personal hygiene

The night before last it rained and the next morning all the leaves were wet. I've seen sparrows bathe in the streams, in puddles and even take dust baths, but this was a first, wet-leaf bathing. They looked so contented, sat soaking and preening in the soggy leaves. Sparrows. So ordinary? NO ! They're absolutely beautiful, here all the time, taken for granted, sweet, lovely and very clean.
