I haven’t posted much about the birds at the feeder. This, and a recent trip to the Detroit Institute of Art, gives me a chance to use a feature the blog’s software offers and which I have never used.
Here are the feeder pic in a “gallery”.
First, a curious but striking shot of the sky at sunset. There follow a Junco with a singular white tail feather, a very scruffy male Goldfinch, and a Red-breasted Nuthatch doing what it does best – hang around upside down.
Well… I am not sure I like this “gallery view”.
During a recent visit to the Detroit Institute of Art I spotted a Virgin and Child in which our little Lord has a firm grasp on a Christological Goldfinch.
I seldom lose an opportunity to post shots of … or even write out… a Christological Goldfinch.
Guess who painted this Virgin and Child, who happens to have a Christological Goldfinch.
(Hint: at the bottom of the painting we read: “BENOZZO GOZZOLI PINXIT”.)
