..."refined gold by weight; and gold for the pattern .... that spread out their wings...." I Chronicles 28:18

The American goldfinches
Who only measure 5 inches....
Are worth their small weight....
For all the colors they create!

He was truly a vision today in the sunlight with the bokeh pattern of natures background!
Since we put the new stand out for the hummingbirds to drink nectar the other birds love to rest on top of the stand and I like where it is placed as it has the crab apple tree in the background..

Best View in Light box! Thank you!!!

Thank you so much Ioana Caravan for the spotlight on 5/16/2018....Very appreciated!!!
