Had to post this incredible caterpillar!
Wow! If you doubted God exists ...
see the beauty,
notice the details,
look at the design,
and there's symmetry too!
And this is but one insect in a vast variety of amazing insects.
Then add to this the complexity of humans, animals, birds, amphibians, aquatics, reptiles, food, herbs, spices, flowers, plants, trees, elements, fossils, rocks, and the solar system. Kinda makes you marvel, huh?
Wow! This was such a neat bird, I had to post it.
The African Skimmer has a bill structure that is one of a kind. The lower bill is much longer than the upper bill, and flattened sideways like scissor blades.
African skimmers fly in lines over calm waters, and dip their lower bills in the water to feed. When the bill touches a fish, the skimmer snaps its mouth shut. They feed mostly at dawn and dusk and have good night vision.
Wading Birds, also known as, Water Birds have flown the coop! Finally, back on track after a busy 9 months!
Up next: Seabirds
Auklet, Cormorant, Frigate, Gannet, Guillemot, Pelican, Penguin, Puffin, Seagull, Skimmer, Tern, Tropicbird
We saw a mess of pelicans at a local wildlife refuge. Not sure if they are just stopping over for a quick bite and then heading south?? I'll have to research that...
[Just noticed the spacing issue in Flamingo text, so fixed that!]

Hello there! One more page, Intriguing Info, and I. AM. DONE. with Chapter 2! So, that means 1/4 of the way done on the book!!!

Many, many blessings & love,
I will proofread the entire book at the end, but if you see any errors please send them my way.
I can always use a top notch proofreader...unfortunately, there's no pay...just the satisfaction of a job well done for our Heavenly Father. Maybe after the book comes out, I would be able to pay you a small stipend.
