Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack? has a weekly photo challenge of Travel Themes. This week the photo theme is Animals.
One lone penguin had wandered off from the group, and he seemed to pose for this picture.
This guy kept moving so much that it was difficult to get a good shot, but he finally paused long enough for me to get a photo that isn’t blurry.
A busy petting zoo is a photo challenge of its own! This mama goat was trying to herd her three kids as they were being chased by the human kids trying to pet them.
The baby kangaroo kept trying to get out of its pouch, but mama pushed it back in every time. You can see part of the baby under mama’s paw.
This zebra took a clue from Mr. Penguin, and wandered off alone while we were taking pictures, then turned to give me this shot.
God created a huge variety of animals, and He proclaimed them good. I agree, I love watching and photographing God’s creatures. It’s hard to imagine having the job of naming all of them, but it would be an interesting assignment.
“Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:24-25
“Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field.” Genesis 2:19-20
