I love the depth and the richness that many of the old hymns have. One of my favorites is Come Thou Fount – probably because I can relate to the “prone to wander” part!
As I sat outside with my camera yesterday afternoon, that old hymn came to my mind as bird after bird paid a visit to the “fount” that flows in my backyard.
This Blue Jay was one of many who stopped by to wet his feathers. He crept over to the edge to make sure the coast was clear and then hopped in the water for a quick splash.
Then he turned and headed back to the fountain…
… this time for a major drenching.
Then it was back to the rocks where he shook the water off of his feathers like a wet dog and flew away.
Every once in awhile it’s fun to get a photo of a Blue Jay without a peanut in his mouth!
