I liked the cheekiness of our back yard sparrow although
I think I might have to get my autofocus checked. I felt
the picture did go well with the Richard Wilbur quote below.



For of course for the many who find joy
or solace or excitement or revelation in nature
relevance or purpose as Wilbur notes is not the point.

"It's hard to tell the purpose of a bird:
for relevance it does not seem to try.
No line can trace no flute exemplify
its traveling: it darts without the word."
