Thine O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in heaven and in the earth is thine:......I Chronicles 29: 11

The wings form a V
As plain as can be
When doing the splits...
If a young birdie long sits
Before he e'en flies....
While eating grape jelly
He may need to exercise
To strengthen the belly.

Poetry by me, AJP

The young male oriole has a geometrical pattern on its back, wings and on tail feathers.
I captured this shot just a split second before he flew off the wired trellis where it had just got
through eating grape jelly.
