...See now I dwell in an house of cedar but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains..2 Samuel 7: 2

Behind the curtain
A bird with courage
Will most certain
Perform on stage.

Through the window...
Was Mr. Blue Jay
Who brought his show
Within the frame
Without the fame,
Ere' he flew away.
Poetry by me AJP

Normally I like to shoot close ups of birds but I caught this blue jay yesterday just as he was about to depart and I was so far back, that the old window pane framed the bird.

    Nicely done. Including the window is such a nice touch. Most times we are trying to shoot through the windows without anyone knowing. Nice image!

    I love the contrast of the seed, feeder and delicate layer of the curtains with the blue in the bird.
