Superb Fairywren (Malurus cyaneus) by AussieBirder
Aussiebirder and his wife, Christian friends we have met through blogging, has just posted a great New Year’s Day Challenge. It is reposted here for you to read and consider. Please enjoy:
As the past year fades away, my wife and I set goals for the new year and look at ways to improve our life together. We ask what can we do better? What do we need to change? What do we need to start doing to achieve our goals for 2018? When we go birding in our local Oatley Park Reserve we find this male Superb Fairy-wren pictured above, eclipsing (this means it is changing its plumage from non breeding to breeding plumage). The male Superb Fairy-wren when not breeding looks very similar to the female, but for its blue tail. You can see the blotchy changes, as it starts to gradually change to its blue coat……
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV)

THIS ENDS THE THREE-WEEK CHALLENGE.
Trust you enjoyed it and were blessed by the Lords Fantastic Creations and His Word.
If anyone is interested in this being continued, please leave a comment. I enjoyed doing them and would continue for awhile longer if there is a desire from the readers.

Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, And Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of them, They would be too numerous to count.
(Psalms 40:5 NASB)
