Psalm 104:24 (MSG)
What a wildly wonderful world, God!
You made it all, with Wisdom at your side,
made earth overflow with your wonderful creation.
My husband, Danny, is an avid, and I might add talented, photographer. Those of you who have followed my blog for any length of time have no doubt viewed many of his photos here. And it's been Danny's dream for quite a while to acquire a super-duper, hefty zoom lens, like the ones you see the National Geographic photographers toting around. Thanks to an unexpected windfall recently, Danny takes the plunge!
This is a Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG. No, I have no idea what all those numbers and letters mean, but does it matter? No! Not when he can take photos like these from an unimaginable distance.
It's that ravenous, rascally Racer!
Mrs. Prancer and her friends hanging out in our woods.
No, this is not Reverend, as he is a Great-horned owl in The Glade Series, but this Barred owl is a majestic bird nonetheless.
This mockingbird, either bravely or foolishly, perches close to the Barred owl, looking for an opportunity to harass him.
A Downy woodpecker in search of dinner.
And look who returns for a special photo-op: Stumpy!
However, as he is frolicking near where Mr. Owl is stationed, we can't help but wonder if this poor little fellow will evade this predator.
Yes, God has generously made our forested yard overflow with His wonderful creations.
And we give thanks for His wildly wonderful world.
Postscript: Danny spied Stumpy again this past Sunday. He lives!
