White-throated sparrow

White-throated sparrow

A Sparrow took a Slice of Twig
And thought it very nice
I think, because his empty Plate
Was handed Nature twice--

Invigorated, waded
In all the deepest Sky
Until his little Figure
Was forfeited away--

~ Emily Dickinson, c.1872

Yes, I was thinking, too....great composition. The glows with light and the branches are situated just right. How nice of the little fellow to pose there for you....or did your husband take this? He's a bird photographer....
