In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?

Job 12:10

The birds on earth
Including the Robin...
That we see in spring,
May best understand
The reason why
God gave wings,
For them to fly...

With His hand,
He opened heaven
So that every living thing
Is given breath
Til' the time of death...
Poetry by me, AJP

This is the ending photo I shot of the American Robin last evening ...Before it
flew away it heard the noise of my husband's chain saw who was trimming trees in the woods in the direction of where its head was turned..

If you look closely to the right of this little bird you might see the faint optical illusion of a hand which I didn't notice until I studied the picture more carefully.

    I don't see the hand, but I do see a twinkle in the bird's eye! Can you imagine being a young bird and hearing the dreadful sound of a chainsaw? LOL

    Thank you all for your kind words...I dearly love birds and I love to see the robins
    who migrate in the spring and the other colorful birds...They bring such cheer.

    I saw the hand also, Andrea. It is very faint but it is there. I love how you got to capture the bird with its head turned when hearing the chainsaw.
