And out of the ground, the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every bird of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof..Genesis 2: 19

God's Biblical creature
Of stature and frame
Had value and worth,
To receive their name
From the first man on earth.
They got their beginning
Before there was sinning.
Poetry by me, AJP

I tried out my 18-105 mm lens to see how close I could get to the Red Squirrel while outside and this was the last picture that I shot before he said he had enough of my camera and scampered away. He was so sweet and patient with me to interrupt his eating time...bless his heart..
