Just another Spring Day........


We woke up this morning to snow on the ground. Out our front window, enjoying our new hand rail we spotted this quail!! He sat there for a long time. Usually there are quite a few of them all together, so I am thinking this one is standing guard and the rest of his family is under shelter from the snow that is falling. I find it very amazing how in the animal/bird etc. world, God made the males beautiful so that preditors would be attracted to them and the rest of their family would be safe. Just look at this little guy, who would think he was a male. When I see quail, I think they look like proper little ladies on their way to a tea party, wearing their little hats adorned with a feather!! I think I can safely say, I am glad God did not plan it that way in the human race. I am glad our men are big and strong and manly and there to protect us in a different way, I am not sure I would want all our men to be "pretty". LOL. Enjoy your spring day, wherever you are, find something new and happy.

Well, I'm not sure that the reason males in the animal world are more attractive is so that they will distract predators from the females. In that arena it would be better if everybody was inconspicuous. It's all about sex, naturally. They're trying to convince those ladies. "Pretty" to you, "good looking hunks" to a female quail.
