"If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uppermost parts of the sea, even there shall thy hand lead me and right hand shall hold me...Psalm 119: 9"

The dove was trying to make himself look enormous to the small red squirrel who was eating on the feeder at the same time but to no avail....The squirrel kept on eating and was not afraid as it knew the dove was all bluff. Not too much can scare a red squirrel off the feeder and they both left at the same time when they got through eating. Nature is fascinating to watch. The dove has the most majestic wings I have seen on a bird who comes to our feeder when they lift them high...This bird felt he had the freedom to use and exercise them for his advantage.

Best View in Light box! Thank you!!!
