Simply Stunning

"...all things denote there is a God;

yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it,

yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator."
~ Alma 30:44

A few summers ago, before I started blogging and before my trusty Cannon met it's tragic end, the kids and I visited a local Aviary.
Tracey Aviary in Salt Lake City to be exact.

These peacocks were just wondering around, cage free and fancy free. As you can see they are very used to people. We could hardly get them to budge.

Simply stunning. Look at the artwork on these amazing birds.
I could not help but share.

Isn't God awesome!
P.S. Click on the photos to see the amazing detail.

What a tragic camera story. Especially because all I want for my next 4 birthday and 8 Christmases is a nice camera.


So sad.

So true! But, those cuckoos are plain mean!

My camera just met an unfortunate death as well, thanks to one of my 2-yr old twins.

The pictures are beautiful and capture the detail and vivid colors so well.

Kristin said...

I've always loved the beauty in peacocks!

Alma 30:44 is still one of my very favorite scriptures.

Such beautiful birds and incredible photos.

I've never taken my kids to an aviary. I need to find one nearby. Those pictures are beautiful!
