It’s Their World, We Just Live In It

It’s been a while since I posted animal pics. So here they are because, well, animals! I do have a theme, though. It’s right there in the title and, our lame humanocity notwithstanding, it’s basically true. And I’m so glad it is!

    These are great, even if the dragon isn’t real.

  3. That snake with the little boy scared the heck out of me! And that lion with those teeth and the little girl!

    Brilliant Mitch – those baby donkeys . . . awwww. Not sure about cuddling up with a Constrictor though. ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. What would we do without animals? My favorite of these is the one about God wanting the person to have 2 dogs, and 13 it is. That would be me if we didn’t travel so much. Have a great weekend!

  6. The man with the bald eagle nestling into his neck is such a great (and unusual) picture of this majestic bird. Love it!

  7. I don’t know that cozying up to a croc is a very good idea.

  8. My favourite was the picture of the catโ€™s response to its owner who had miaowed at it. Reminded me of the time my husband tried to compliment our French host about his cheese. The hosts shocked expression was similar. What my husband had said was โ€œyour cheese tastes like a dogโ€ rather than โ€œyour cheese tastes lovelyโ€. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I haven’t seen anyone carrying animals in their baggage. But dogs are pretty good pets๐Ÿ’ฏ

  10. Great photos, Mitch. My favourites are the man snuggling with a red fox and the dancing chickens. I’m not sure, however, if I’d want to get close to some of the other animals here, especially not the Boa. It’s huge! I’ve never seen one – are they really as big as in the photo? I enjoyed looking at these pictures.

  11. Animals are fascinating and while I prefer the softy cuddly type, they all have a distinct beauty and fascination. Lovely post, Mitch.

  13. Genesis would seem to indicate that it’s our world and they live in it. However, with that exalted position comes the responsibility to care for and steward nature’s resources.

    Love the pics.

      I thought about that when I chose the title, Jay. But then I remembered that, from an eternal perspective, it’s animals who are the true natives here; while we (at least those who answer the call) are “spiritual beings on a human journey” (Peirre Tielhard de Chardin); and this, as C.S. Lewis often reminds us, is not our true home. Of course, there’s also the simple fact that, as anyone who’s ever loved an animal knows, we don’t own them, they own us. ;>)

  14. Lovely pics Mitch. I just hope we humans could care more animals. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Heart warming post, Mitch. Can’t wait for the time when Isaiah 11:6-9 will finally be fulfilled – The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them…
