The birds of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches...
Psalms104: 12

As the evening breeze
Softly stirs the branches
The sunlight dances
Amongst the leaves,
Where songs are heard.

Maybe the angels fly
With feathered wing
From heaven's sky...
Upon the earth to sing
Bringing God's word
In the form of a bird..
Poetry by me, AJP

I love to find positive verses in the Bible speaking about the birds of heaven as I have always compared our feathered friends to little angels..

I decided to do a self portrait in our woods this evening to keep in practice and to experiment with the lighting using manual focus.

    This is such a peaceful photo, I love the verse about the singing birds. That is a real pleasure in life to hear the different songs of the birds and see their beautiful colors.

    A lovely and quiet capture, Andrea. I love to be in the woods when it is completely quiet except for the songs of the birds.

    This capture makes me think of "The Sound of Music".

    Thank you everyone for your kind words...Eithne, I feel the same way. When I do
    a self portrait...I feel more comfortable turning my back to the camera and I also
    like shots taken from behind other people as well....

    Such a peaceful pose, taking in the view and sounds of nature.. The lighting and tones are so beautiful here.. and the fact that you are facing away from the camera adds another dimension to this image..
