Like Francis of Assisi

You may have heard the legends of St. Francis of Assisi, who would preach to birds and they would listen to him. Is it possible that I am mastering the art of attracting animals? Am I becoming more like St. Francis? You judge:

Picture taken at Ipswich River yesterday. The bird was a Black-Capped Chickadee. I think bird watching (and attracting) will be my next hobby if I can't fish.

the "holy glow" of the sun in the background adds to the st. francis effect. =)

and to any doubters out there... i can attest that this picture isn't photoshopped! ;)

Did you preach to it? Can you preach to puppies? I want one.

this photo is pretty awesome. I just got back from the Christian Community Development Association's annual conference up in Cincinnati last week. Devon was there, too, and we got to catch up a bunch, which did my soul good.
