Flirtation

Finch flirtation flourishes

Perched, beak to beak, fence-top

Chattering animatedly

Punctuating points with

Periodic playful pecks

Female shifts away abruptly

Annoyed or coyly?

Male instantaneously launches pursuit

Flutter-hops into view

Once again nose to nose

Heads bobbing, wings quivering

Twittering tango resumes

Dramatically, female darts off

Winging furiously.

Bejeweled, ruby, of breast

Male surveys departure

Besotted, bewildered,

Banking on a return?
