"Set yourself, stand still...Feat not, nor be dismayed...II Chronicles 20:17"

The male Yellow Rumped Warbler was waiting for the squirrel to leave the feeder and he stood very still on the hummingbird stand so that I was able to get a clear shot through the window.

The atmospheric lighting has a different cast because of the rain... We have been getting lots of rain but so far haven't seen the snow predicted for today yet... it may come later in the day. The little Warblers who are migratory birds are just trying to keep warm today on May 1st.

Best View in Light-box! Thanks!!!

Fear not today
E'en if it snows....
on the 1st of May......
As a Warbler knows
Snow won't last long.....
While Spring is here
And winter is gone
Until another year....
But waits in the rain
For the food he'll gain...

    Poor little guy, he's probably cold and hungry, but the squirrels get first dibs. I love the color cast the rain gave this image, it's unusual and really beautiful. Gorgeous portrait!

    Love this saturated version--like an abstract behind a realistic setting
