In the presence of such creation, I am in total awe of God's mysterious wondrous variety! How blessed we are to witness all this beauty - created for God's own pleasure, which God has so wonderfully shared with us. I ask that wisdom be granted to all, that we might tend it carefully, to keep it safeguarded from our own foolishness. How much we have lost because of our own wanton destruction! How much remains for which we are to show our faithful stewardship? It's up to us all...enjoy the beauty of the earth!
Here is some of my recent photos- it is a song of praise to the Creator.
|Love those antennae and feet!|
|Smok(e)y Mountain "smoke" - and I prefer putting the "e" in Smokey, though sometimes I bow to convention.|
|Near sunset, after a rain.|
|These guys (and mates) are incredibly prolific! I've seen hundreds throughout this summer.|
|They seldom share one of these blossoms. . .|
|Reflection of the sunrise in our gazing ball. A spider was busy overnight.|
No, I am NOT a lawn ornament! I'm a Canada Goose (and don't call me "Canadian!" Never even been there!)
|He obviously knows his complementary colors!|
|Chirrrr - rip!|
|On these blossoms, they will often share - especially if they are different species.|
|If you can enlarge this photo, you will see the sticky "sap" that they exude from the ends of their feet. Keeps them stable, I guess!|
|Is this where Sikorsky got his idea?|
|Sunset. . .|
|Hey! You up front! Are you sure we're going in the right direction?|
Until next time - enough. . .
