click here to download this clip from its internet archive watch/download page

we crossed paths with this beauty a couple of days ago and was fortunate enough to be able to capture this short clip to share of this fine specimen of louisiana's natural world.

And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. ~ genesis chapter one verses twenty-four and twenty-five kjv
