♪♫♩God Sees the LIttle Sparrow Fall

God sees the little sparrow fall, ♪♫
Camera Critters #220
It meets God's tender view;
If God so loves the little birds,
I know God loves me, too

An old song from my former church choir days, me in the front row in the sopranos, with my Mom singing alto. Dad in the back row singing tenor.
I thought of it when I heard this bird singing. One of my Mom's favourites! I think of her every time I hear this bird sing.

This song sparrow landed on my giraffelope. This is a critter I made from branches, a dead tree trunk, and a piece of cedar for its head.
It was difficult taping into the sun, I couldn't see the bird, but I could capture its song. What a delightful songbird! I inserted the images of the song sparrow as my video work was iffy!!!
Another Wood Frog in my pond!

Many critters around these days. I love them all!
A wee, new Wood Frog
-its size: so tiny!

They are beautifully coloured!

Can you see it? The boys were hunting it.
A young Shrew, squeaking for mercy!
I put it in another garden, where the boys couldn't find it.

Sadie guards her backyard!
You can't see it, 
but the tree frog lives in the planter!
It climb up the Hops vine in the night!

A nice way to remember your Mom.
Shrews? Wouldn't that little guy be clawing your hand out? Their claws are terribly sharp. It would certainly tickle.

Wow! I've never seen an actual shrew before. It really does have a long, pointy nose!
