Thine is the kingdom and power and glory forever...St. Matthew 6: 13

I am delighted that I was able to capture the brown- headed cowbird, inconspicuously while he sat on the power line, with my little Nikon COOLPIX P600 ... the 60 x zoom was extended as far as it would go, (equivalent to a 35 mm focal length of 1440mm.)

I bought this refurbished little camera that was on sale at a reasonable price for a limited time offer a few weeks ago...It comes in handy mainly for using when walking any distance for nature shots where I don't have to carry heavy equipment.

A Brown-headed Cowbird
Who stopped for a time...
Might have got the word
From above the power line...
To just sit there and rest...
Where he could see best.
Poetry by me AJP
