O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together...Psalms 34:3

Let us exalt the Lord together
Thru' the birds of each feather.
May they fly high to magnify,
In nature, to praise His majesty...
The Rose breasted Grosbeak
Shall of itself speak
Of the creator in the sky...

Poetry by me, AJP

I decided to do a macro head and shoulder shot of the male Rose Breasted Grosbeak ..The Grosbeaks arrived this season around the same time as the Orioles, the Indigo Buntings and the Hummingbirds..I love to see these pretty migrating birds as they bring such color.

    So beautiful, yet so small. I love them. Do I see your reflection in his eye? I think I do...

  • Andrea Petersen

    Andrea Petersen said (19 May 2011):

    Thank you all...In the bigger version of the picture, Gloria it looks like the pupil
    in its eye...The grosbeaks have very large eyes and pupils. However it is
    reflecting the white siding on the house.
