Report from the natural world: surviving the snow

The ecologist and naturalist David Goode sent in these two photos. “Our garden birds have had a hard time in the snow,” he writes, “but they have survived.”

Quakers are advised (see para 41):

We do not own the world, and its riches are not ours to dispose of at will. Show a loving consideration for all creatures, and seek to maintain the beauty and variety of the world. Work to ensure that our increasing power over nature is used responsibly, with reverence for life. Rejoice in the splendour of God’s continuing creation.
