SundayThought

 “Was it through your know-how that the hawk learned to fly, soaring effortlessly on thermal updrafts? 

Did you command the eagle’s flight, and teach her to build her nest in the heights, perfectly at home on the high cliff face, invulnerable on pinnacle and crag? 

From her perch she searches for prey, spies it at a great distance. Her young gorge themselves on carrion; wherever there’s a road kill, you’ll see her circling.”

Job 39:26-30

  2. Appropriate quotation for the photo! I feel closest to God when I examine the perfect design and rhythms of nature. The forest and oceans are my church that I spend a good few hours in every Sunday! :)

  7. God's speech to Job, I have always loved that verse! The Caracara is guarding the fox for himself, now I wonder if he will be able to carry it off?

  8. The crested caracara is such a neat bird! We have them here in south Texas. They are interesting in that they will also kill their own food, unlike most carrion birds of prey that will only eat dead meat. Ours don't seem to have as much black, they are sometime mistaken for bald eagles (although not as big) because of their white heads. Excellent scripture pairing!
