  1. The beauty of creation

    It's a bit hard to tell from the angle, but it might be an American Salmonfly or Stonefly. Was it near water? Whether it is or not, an interesting fact about these insects is that they lay their eggs in water, and if the water is polluted in any way, the larvae will die, so if you see many of these insects and their larvae, it means the water is clean! The larvae eat algae and rotting plant matter in the water. The mature, winged adult only lives about a month and doesn't eat.
  2. Thank you for the update! I’m glad the church members and the church building are all okay. Where you in Hualien during the earthquake?
  3. Glad to hear you're okay! I'll pass on the news to those who've been asking about you. Do you know if all the church members are okay?
  4. The beauty of creation

    Beautiful photo, Weary Warrior! It makes me really want to be there! Beautiful photo, Jim Alaska! It makes me glad I'm not there!
  5. The beauty of creation

    Yes, it is a rabbit. The distance and the fact it was running does distort it a bit. There are more rabbits around here now, but they are extremely shy and will bolt at the slightest movement, as prey animals usually do when in areas where they are heavily hunted. There are hawks, bobcats, and coyotes commonly in the area. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get pictures of the predators, and likely won't.
  6. The beauty of creation

    I love seeing wildlife in their natural habitats, and if I manage to get a halfway decent picture of them, I'm thrilled! These two pictures were taken the same day, unfortunately I have a knack for startling the animals and don't generally get great pictures, but I'm happy with what I got. Can't expect wild animals to cooperate with a photo session! haha!
  7. Hey, it's Alan's Birthday

    Happy birthday!
  8. What are you thankful for?

    The American celebration of Thanksgiving is this month. It's usually a time when we reflect on the blessings we've received, and so I thought a thread dedicated to sharing those blessings would be a good idea. For me, after five years on the mission field I didn't have a proper oven, and now I do. And I'm so thankful for it that I did the unthinkable and signed up to cook a turkey for my church's Thanksgiving banquet! I'm also thankful for the safety God has given me while traveling. There has been two clear instances when I know God had been protecting me, and I'm sure many more I'll never know about. I'm thankful for my Pastor helping me find a cell phone that works even out in the middle of nowhere. I'm thankful that I turned the porch light on and looked out before I opened the door and stepped on the skunk.
  9. Activity on Online Baptist

    I've been lurking amongst the threads, but haven't posted much. Since this forum is more active when there's controversy, here's something controversial for you. The dreaded "selfie"!! *gasp*

    Cows aren't the most majestic creatures to photograph (although Highland cattle are adorable), but combined with early morning fog, I thought they looked striking. Also took a picture of a weed. Even pesky plants can look beautiful.

    Another early morning.
  12. The beauty of creation

    It's almost worthwhile to get up at sunrise when living in the country.
  13. The beauty of creation

    Tussock caterpillars are everywhere, these two are from Taiwan: Sunset against a smokey sky a few weeks ago, near Spokane, WA.
