Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols...Amos 5:23
Can be softly heard
In the melody
Of a Viola
And a gentle bird...
The American Robin
Found his voice
Plus his identity
Poetry by me AJP
I combined two pictures together here...I bought a flower box of pansies a few days ago. They are also known as Viola. I did a macro shot on one of the tiny flowers and two days before that shot a picture of this robin that I previously misidentified as an oriole:) Leanne Silva pointed my mistake out to me and she is so correct. I am embarrassed over this error because I do know what a robin looks like but I had never taken a close up of one until I got my macro lens.
The robin has never come to the feeder before in all of the years we've been feeding birds .. They are not in the habit of eating jelly that I am aware of which the oriole loves nor are they in the habit of eating sunflower seeds so I was not used to seeing a robin on our feeder...
Ironically the shadow by the bird's leg went right in line with the stem of the flower after I combined the two pictures and it made a perfect fit.
I decided to give this one a try on the paradise theme...I find solace in nature and God's creation ... For me, Paradise is visualizing what God offers us in just appreciating the simple things of life. We can search the world over but if we do not find true happiness within ourselves paradise would be hard to believe or conceive...
Thank you so much for the courtesy of the spotlight, Elfriede.
Thank you Leanne Silva for correcting my mistake.
