... He commanded, and they were created. Psalms 148:5

I love it when the cardinals decide to sit on the branch of the Flowering Crab Apple Tree as it makes such a pretty background for this colorful bird. I shot this picture at 5:00 PM last evening and manually focused through the window.

Thank you so much Regenia for nominating this picture...
