He that goeth forth bearing precious seed shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him...
Psalms 126: 6

His colorful plumage on display,
The male rose breasted Grosbeak
Bears witness to how life speaks
In what he brings in his own way,
Carrying precious seed in May....
Poetry by me, AJP

I seem to be finding pictures that I am liking better that I shot in the month of May last year than this time of the year where it is rather bleak and cold looking outside.
Spring will come again soon and I will be rejoicing when it does:)

    This is a beautiful bird that we do not see here. This is an excellent capture of this gorgeous bird and great timing to have a seed in its beak! Love that light yellow background.
