  1. You have some really incredible pictures in this post! I would be hard pressed to say my favorite, so many interesting ones. I enjoyed the quote by Darwin as I am currently going through the Genesis study with Dr. Chuck Missler, my all-time favorite Bible teacher, and he goes into great detail about the science and myths of creation. Have a wonderful rest of the week!

    • Thanks Jen, Yes Chuck is a good Bible teacher, and true so much of what is called science today is pure hypothesis by people desparate to explain a world without God to excuse their sinful behaviour as Jesus says in John 3 and Paul in Romans 1. As a scientist it really irks me that these so called intelligent people get away with lying to the world on so many issues, so that unproven philosophy is now called proven fact. What the world does not know is that many atheist and agnostic scientists who start out trying to prove evolution with an honest heart become Christian God believers when they honestly examine the facts, Dr Gary Parker is an amazing exponent on revealing the lie, as he was one himself. https://answersingenesis.org/bios/gary-parker/
      I have always had trouble with my colleges explaining because they have been fed evolution from a young age and can’t believe they can be deceived. It all is culminating in readiness for the beast and his prophet as the last days in Revelation 20 are proclaimed that the Satan will be released to deceive the nations. Only the grace of God through the Holy Spirit will bring faith to the heart of the one who truly seeks the truth. Thanks so much Jen for sharing I love your joyful, encouraging, Christ-like spirit I discern from your most welcome comments. Enjoy your week.

      • Aw, thank you for the kind comments, and the link! I will definitely check it out. I’m sure it is very hard for you as a scientist, but thankfully there are scientists like you out there. I miss Chuck, but am so happy for the technology to be able to continue to study with him….I have a very non-science mind but am trying and he really helps! I am endeavoring to study to “show myself” approved” so I can give answers when needed. Yes, things are definitely lining up and I truly believe we are in the days spoken of thought the prophets. I am amping up my time and study in the Word to stay ready and not fall into the deceptions which we are warned about. So nice to “meet” fellow believers around the world through technology…Blessings to you and your wife!!

  2. Hi Ashley, what a great post full of wonderful photos of some of our amazing birds. I love the rainbow bee eaters, I remember seeing them on Fraser Island many years ago. And what excellent photos and footage of the various raptors you came across. Have a great week!

    • Thanks Sue, it was a wonderful opportunity to see what we did. We needed fresh birds as our own birds had dropped off due to winter and drought. Hope it’s good birding for you. Have a great week 😊

  3. Love them all, but I guess the two Black and Red birds win out this time. The Red-tailed Black Cockatoo and the Red-backed Fairy-wren, are my favorites

    • Thanks HJ, we do enjoy the great variety of birds and how they vary in different parts of the country. We have over 70 varieties of Honeyeaters spread over our continent alone and that is only one species. Our birds are fairly competitive for nectar and blossom and much aggression occurs between species when trees are dripping with nectar.

    • Yes Kathy, it is a beautiful little bird to see in the wild, it stands out so stunningly against the bush and catches your eye even though it is so small. It moves about so fast it is difficult to catch a shot in focus. Enjoy your week!

    • Thanks Karen, yes that word sums it all up, our birds are very beautiful gifts for us to enjoy, and they bless us in much deeper ways than I often realize, and bring thankfulness and gratitude to another level. Have a truly wonderful and interesting week!
