“For in vain is a net spread in the sight of any bird,” Proverbs 1:17 ESV
Not sure if the bird is watching me (I wasn’t spreading a net, just taking a picture) or happened to look my way. But, it does show why this proverb is true. It’s useless to try to snare a bird if they see what you’re doing.
“but these men lie in wait for their own blood; they set an ambush for their own lives. Such are the ways of everyone who is greedy for unjust gain; it takes away the life of its possessors.” Proverbs 1:18-19 ESV
But then, the real point is made – those who are greedy for unjust gain, set traps for themselves, and walk straight in, even though they see the end coming.

A rare shot! Something like I’d like for my book cover, but I want a prairie native bird singing. I’ve been looking a birds in branches for several days now to find just the right one so I’m feeling like a bit of a connoisseur by now. 🙂 Your would have great potential for the right ‘Here’s lookin’ atcha’ spot.
Thanks Christine – I was surprised when I zoomed in and saw him looking my way. Hope you have success on your quest.
