Ant


 

 Ant
One morning I wasted nearly an hour watching a tiny ant carry a huge feather across my back terrace. Several times it was confronted by obstacles in its path and after a momentary pause it would make the necessary detour. At one point the ant had to negotiate a crack in the concrete about 10mm wide. After brief contemplation the ant laid the feather over the crack, walked across it and picked up the feather on the other side then continued on its way.
I was fascinated by the ingenuity of this ant, one of God’s smallest creatures. It served to reinforce the miracle of creation. Here was a minute insect, lacking in size yet equipped with a brain to reason, explore, discover and overcome. But this ant, like the two-legged co-residents of this planet, also shares human failings. After some time the ant finally reached its destination – a flower bed at the end of the terrace and a small hole that was the entrance to its underground home. And it was here that the ant finally met its match. How could that large feather possibly fit down that small hole? Of course it couldn’t. So the ant, after all this trouble and exercising great ingenuity, overcoming problems all along the way, just abandoned the feather and went home.
The ant had not thought the problem through before it began its epic journey and in the end the feather was nothing more than a burden. Isn’t life like that!We worry about our family, we worry about money or the lack of it, we worry about work, about where we live, about all sorts of things. These are all burdens – the things we pick up along life’s path and lug them around the obstacles and over the crevasses that life will bring, only to find that at the destination they are useless and we can’t take them with us.

Eagle almost gets a swan

These photos were taken recently by Tom Carver.he lives on Lakelse Lake ( just outside of Terrace, B.C. ) 
he also feed the swans on the lake all the time .Eagles are very common in this area .these are amazing photos

!Enjoy Swan and Eagle pictures.

 
So here is the swan photo.

 

What a beautiful bird – so graceful and majestic.

Here comes the Eagle !!

 

You can see the feathers from the swan flying here.

 

 

This one is so amazing to see the actual eagle wing span beside the swan.

The poor swan must be scared to death. It is attempting to actually escape death in the air !!

 

 
The eagle is loosing his grip on the swan in this picture.

 

 

Now the eagle has just lost his grip on the swan completely.

 

At this point the swan starts falling straight down.

 

The swan falls into the water below – swims away and the eagle just looks on at his ‘lost’ prey. he was amazed at these pictures

because he had NEVER seen an eagle attack or tackle something so big in mid-air before.
