...He was little of stature ..and he ran before and climbed up into a tree to see Him: for He was to pass that way. St. Luke 19: 3-4
A brave nuthatch
Out on a broken limb
Of the weeping willow tree
Was there before,
Perhaps to find Him
And did not see me,
By the front door.

But I did catch her
With my camera...
This bird of tiny stature,
And great stamina
The best I could,
Where I stood
On this snowy day,
As she passed my way.
Poetry, by me AJP
It was snowing again today and I wondered if I would see anything else but snow..Then I saw this little bird on the broken limb which stayed long enough for me to shoot a picture. I had thought about cropping this picture but I decided to show the immense size of the limb in comparison to the tiny bird and left it as it was.
