Father & Daughter 2009 Retreat - Butterflies and Birds

"So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good."
Genesis 1:21

These are the pictures of the butterflies and other flying things that Jesus helped me capture at the Father & Daughter Retreat last weekend. Enjoy! :)

(As a reminder, you can click on a picture and it will enlarge if you want more detail)

This butterfly was captured while flying which is a pretty difficult task!

Some type of moth in the butterfly garden.

While it was still raining, Daddy took me outside and we walked around until Daddy spotted some bird feeders and a bench. We went and sat down (since it was raining Daddy took off his coat and put it on the bench for me - such a gentleman! :) and soon the birds that had been scared off came around again.

A beautiful woodpecker!

This little squirrel was as friendly as could be. He didn't seem intimidated by us at all but just kept creeping...

...and creeping...

...and creeping until he reached the ground underneath the feeders where all the seeds had dropped from the messy songbirds.

He then went up a tree nearby after he had had his fill! :)

A beautiful cardinal!

Mr. Cardinal again - he wouldn't come very close to us so I was thankful that I had the big lens on (70-200 mm for you camera people, for those not very big camera people the "big lens" is just used to magnify something far away, so it is a lot closer up).


That's all for this post on wildlife and flying things - next are the flowers (my favorite). I do have lots of pictures of flowers, so the next post will not be short! :)

May Jesus bless you all!

All for Jesus,

Kimber :)
