This site has some incredible photos from 2008. Each picture tells a story and gives us a glimpse of the incredible diversity of the natural world, the peoples that live in it and the daily lives of those people.

We have had some really cool encounters with birds lately. Its been an especially nice treat for me because it means I can enjoy little creatures without having pets, as our situation doesn’t allow us to have any.

When we were at Windsor Castle on Saturday ~ on an amazing date planned by my thoughtful husband! ~ we spotted this adorable little guy on the wall looking out over the mote. A small crowd soon gathered when people realised we were looking at the wall, and not the beautiful scene beyond.

A hole on the outside of our wooden flat has also become a home for a family of birds, although I am not sure what type because they stay inside a lot! I hope their mummy is ok because I tend to hear the little chirpies a lot…! My ear is now trained to the sound of baby birds and I have found a couple of nests just by listening out…impressive eh?! : )

Praise the Lord for his creation ~ and that we get a daily dose of birdies where we live!
