Bunnies!

May. 22nd, 2015 05:55 pm
Yesterday evening I was a bit surprised to see a mother rabbit with her 4 baby bunnies right out in the open. Though it was an adorable sight, especially when the bunnies all went to get some milk from their mom. Sometimes when they were playing they'd flop over on their backs with their little legs kicking in the air.

I snapped a picture but the quality wasn't that great since I had to take it from behind glass. It was too hard to get all the bunnies in one shot. They were all over the place.



Sadly, my cat got one of the bunnies later on. I thought it might happen but I didn't know where my cat was right away to keep him from the rabbits.

Now I just hope the rest will be safe. I've never seen a mother rabbit bring out all her babies like this before. It seems odd so I wondered if they got spooked from their nest. Usually I see bunnies wait until they are ready to live on their own before they all come out like this.

Professor Walter Veith takes you through the principles of evolution to expose what scientists are not telling you. With a doctorate in zoology, Professor Veith proves creationism scientifically.

Walter Veith has taught university students for many years and once again presents this relevant information in an easy to understand multimedia presentation.

Tiger's Eye

Golden and red-brown Tiger's Eyes next to a Hawk's Eye (An incompletely silicified blue variant of the Tiger's Eye).

The mineral in the background is an unpolished Tiger's Eye.

Collecting rocks and minerals has been a long time hobby of mine. I love all the different shapes, colors, and textures. So when I read through Revelation 21 and came across the texts about the foundations of the wall of the New Jerusalem I decided it would be amazing if I could collect a specimen of rock for each foundation. It could be a mini exhibit =).

19 And the foundations of the wall
of the city were garnished with all
manner of precious stones. The first
foundation was jasper; the second,
sapphire; the third, a chalcedony;
the fourth, an emerald;
20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth,
sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the
eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz;
the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the
eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an
amethyst.
               - Revelation 21:19,20 KJV

To sum that up, I'll need:
  • jasper
  • sapphire
  • chalcedony
  • emerald
  • sardonyx
  • sardius
  • chrysolite
  • beryl
  • topaz
  • chrysoprasus
  • jacinth
  • amethyst
The modern identity of some of these minerals is still disputed, so it's hard to know for certain exactly what I need. However I have already started to collect what I can positively identify. So far I've got jasper, chalcedony, beryl, and amethyst. I'll just have keep collecting gradually as I can afford it and as I come across the specimens needed.

I took my mom's dog on a hike at a nearby state park today.

This is the first time he's ever gone swimming in running water. The current intimidated him slightly but it wasn't very strong. He wagged his tail as I encouraged him on his way back <3



Out of all the pictures I took of the butterflies, it was a caterpillar that came out the best. I'm happy about it though. If I can get a good photo of anything I'm ecstatic.

Now that I think about it, I should have asked what this little guy is called. The red markings lead me to think he might be poisonous, but I can't be positive about that.



A beautiful Snowdrop flower with a drop of dew still clinging to it. I found a small patch of them growing out in my backyard.



Here is what they look like on the inside. A wonderful sight after a long winter.



I'm so happy to see fresh green plant life coming back.
