So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. – Genesis 1
Today I offer a visual treat. A handful of photos of the birds who have been flying in and out of our garden over the past couple of days.
Like my last posting, most of these are young, downy, a little awkward, and only partially grown.
I love the enthusiasm, the verve, the energy for life on display when I see them zoom in and sing their little hearts out.
Isn’t creation marvelous! How can we do anything other than celebrate along with them?
