I will take the cup of salvation , and call upon the name of the Lord... Psalms 116: 13

We've had our share of rainy weather lately and it was very overcast type of lighting today
when I shot this picture of the female oriole who had been eating grape jelly out of the cup.

We have seen a lot of Orioles migrate here this spring, more than usual...In the past they did not stay this long..I love the song birds and think they sense how I feel about them. This afternoon after it stopped raining a black capped Chickadee and a wren sang a duet to me from the trees and they sounded beautiful together:)

Thank you, Donald Garrett for the courtesy of the spotlight...I appreciate it very much!
