I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord...and I will sing praises unto thy name...
II Samuel 22:50
Says the Chickadee,
I may not be a butterfly
Pollinating the plum tree
Neath' a deep blue sky...
But from the Lord I came
After beneficial rain...
To sing unto His name.
Poetry by me, AJP
It rained all day but early this evening at 4:30 it stopped..It was too cold for the butterflies to flit around the flowering plum tree but this sweet little guy showed up instead...I almost felt like he knew what I wanted and it flew to the flowering plum tree as if on cue staying long enough for me to shoot three pictures. The lighting of course after rain is more overcast and hazy than the deep blue sky I had the advantage of from the butterfly shot on Thursday..
I have wondered how humans would cope if we were born with wings instead of arms and hands. It would be interesting to be a bird for just one day . I have the utmost respect for these little feathered creatures who have learned how to survive in the toughest of conditions in their kingdom and they really are not inferior to us in my opinion. They were born for a purpose to give enlightenment the same as we were born to give purpose to our life on earth..We can learn from nature.
