Be not forgetful to entertain strangers for thereby some have entertained angels unawares Hebrew 13: 2

it was incredible how the male cardinal was playing with different poses for me today.. He isn't always so relaxed for the camera. I noticed there was a soft breeze ruffling him at the moment that I shot this image through the window. It may sound odd but it was almost like invisible spirits tickled his feathers for this pose before he flew away from the feeder.

Ere' the cardinal flew away....
Gentle breezes did their play,
With the spirits of the air,
That groomed him unaware.

His tail feathers one angel brushed
And another combed his crest...
Earthly duties were not rushed...
For the bird who was their guest.
