My contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Seraphic, Diaphanous, Immutable.
Once I had used online dictionaries to find the meaning of each of the words I had to come up with an idea for the challenge.
This Red-breasted Nuthatch taking flight makes me think of some images of angels (seraphic) and the spread wings are delicate and slightly translucent (diaphanous).
