Quote & Pheathers -The Hummer

Saturday evening, we watched two hummingbirds battling for rights over a firecracker plant. We were amazed at how long they dove and swooped at each other in the air. Finally, only one remained, and exhausted, he took some respite in the back yard pine tree. After the big battle with another wondrous flyer, an earthbound human didn’t seem very threatening to him, and he let me take at least a dozen or more photographs of him. What a wondrous little bird God fashioned when he created the hummingbird.

O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
~ Psalm 104:24

On our travels around the Delaware Bay yesterday we stopped at the 2017 Cumberland County Winter Eagle Festival. These two screech owls were breathtaking in their beauty. They were so perfect, at first glance they didn’t seem to be real; I actually thought they were mechanical toys. God’s world is amazing!
