...And his rest shall be glorious...Isaiah 11:10

A robin red breast
Found a place to rest
On the old grader wheel,
After spending many hours
Digging for its meal.
The glory of a bird and flowers
Amongst the Canterbury Bells,
Is the story nature tells...

Poetry by me AJP

An American Robin flew to the antique road grader wheel as if on cue, where it stood for the few seconds it took to shoot this image..I felt extremely happy, lucky and blessed to capture this spontaneous moment:)....I had been following behind the robin as it was digging for worms and was going to take a picture of it on the ground when it had a better idea for the location of the photo shoot.
