Fear not little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom...St. Luke 12: 32

The gray catbird was waiting here for a gray squirrel to finish eating on the feeder and it was sitting on an Olive tree branch with the flowering crab apple tree behind..

As pesky as squirrels are with hogging the feeder, they offer me good opportunities to capture birds pictures as they wait so patiently in the trees for their turn.

Waiting with head turned
On the olive tree branch
A catbird soon learned
Luck is not only by chance...

Squirrels at the table
Arrive there one by one...
As quickly as they are able
But take longer to get done.

The diner without lock
Waits for the stray flock,.
For the late to come...
And feast at the kingdom.
Poetry by me, AJP

    The colors in the bokeh are almost as good as the image of the bird.
