The Works of the Lord are Great ~ Critters

I have a fascination with little critters.  Their intricacies of design amaze me.

God’s handiwork is everywhere for those who will stop long enough to study.

As long as spiders keep their distance, they do have amazing designs!

The works of the Lord are great…

*BTW ~ my neighbor witnessed me photographing the caterpillar.  I told him that I really need a life!

Stand Still ~ God’s Wonders in a Dragonfly

Dragonfly perchedStand still and consider the wondrous works of God
Job 37:14

God blows me away with the wonders of His creation.  We find evidences of His designs in the simplest of things, like a dragonfly.  Often, to appreciate these examples of God’s creation, we have to stand very still.  It helps even further when our subject remains still!

I discovered this little friend while on my way to the mailbox the other day.  Not at all convinced that he would stay long enough for me to retrieve my camera, I went inside to get it anyway.  When I returned, I was pleasantly surprised to see him still there, perched atop a Little Gem Magnolia leaf.  What I didn’t expect was how still he remained, and how he seemed to playfully pose.  (I have no idea whether this dragonfly was male or female; supposedly, males are brighter in color.  Unless some of you know different, and can let me know, I’ll just call this one a he).  

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did snapping them!  

It looked like he stuck his tongue out at me

Poised for takeoff ~ he did hop from one leaf to another

One final glimpse

One last glimpse before he tired of our photo shoot and left
