I stretch forth my hands unto thee...
Psalms 143:6

Black Capped Chickadee
Came to me
With trust and love
To eat a seed
Upon my glove.

Finally I got a picture of this sweet little bird on my left hand while I shot the picture with my right using my wide angle lens...It was 2 degrees when I shot this therefore had to wear my gloves...I am going to try again without gloves when the temperature gets warmer.

    Fantastic Andrea!!! Getting the Chickadee to eat out of your hand is awesome. The way that you took the photo with one gloved hand and on wide angle is great, it makes it look like a painting : )
