I keep telling myself I have enough Eagle photo’s but then I spot an eagle & engage in the challenge of getting as close as I can without spooking them. This is really difficult seeing eagles eye sight is eight times better than the human eye & my old diesel engine is about eight times louder than other cars & the colour red is highly noticeable on a country road.
If however there is dead roo (kangaroo) or wallaby around, particularly by the side of the road (road kill), wild birds of prey if hungry enough will take it to the close & sort of personal limit also. The Eagle is a magnificent bird of strength & size with great eye sight, sharp beak with sharp & strong claws often on the lookout for food. Hawks although smaller share similar attributes.
“Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread its wings toward the south? Does the eagle soar at your command and build its nest on high? It dwells on a cliff and stays there at night; a rocky crag is its stronghold. From there it looks for food; its eyes detect it from afar. Its young ones feast on blood, and where the slain are, there it is.” Job 39:26-30.
God’s Word proclaims that He is the Maker of heaven & earth, all the wisdom & ingenuity & information comes from Him, it was no accident even though it appears marred after the fall. Nature can leave us struck down in awe at times, how much greater is God then. This ought to give us a humbling perspective but alas our pride often gets in the way whether we are right or wrong about something.
Being humble before God, who sees all things near or far is who or what we should be drawing near to when it comes to worship & awe. This world has much to offer in short term gain but nothing compares to the wisdom of God displayed in Christ. Luke 1:46-56 (Mary’s Song). This I also need to grow in, you can never have too much of God.
