Ye shall not need to fight in this battle; set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord, with you...fear not, nor be dismayed... for tomorrow the Lord will be with you...2 Chronicles 20:17
The Baltimore Oriole, a migrating bird from South America returned here for the season a couple of days ago...They usually arrive a little earlier than this...It is only in the 40's today with the threat of snow flakes on Monday..
This brave colorful bird looked slightly cold when I shot this picture. We made sure to put out some grape jelly and a half an orange...We also saw its female mate who wasn't quite as cooperative as the male to take her picture...He stood very still for me as I shot this picture through the window....and I was able to hand hold my camera without the tripod. I normally try to use the tripod when taking pictures of birds as they like to move around quickly as a rule.
