On a recent visit to the Discovery Nature Sanctuary at Winkler, I had the joy of capturing a series of photos of the Blue-Winged Teal on take-off.
In a perfect world the bird would be flying into the pictures, but we all know that we don't live in a perfect world.
Enjoy the photos and a few quotes I found online.
“Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?”
“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them.
Of how much more value are you than the birds!
Luke 12:24 ESV
