Sparrow Feeding

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? — Matthew 6:26 (NIV)

I was experimenting with my camera when we spotted this sparrow on the back patio. At first we thought it was injured because it didn’t fly away and it let us get so close. I grabbed some bird seed and held my hand out over the planter when he jumped right up on my hand. I slowly lifted the camera up and was able to snap a few shots before he hopped off. He hung around for a few more minutes before flying off.
