Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Heroic pit bull saves 8-year-old boy from deadly bee attack by dragging him to safety

Mirror, Kara O'Neill, Aug 31, 2014

The dog pulled the boy to safety after the swarm of stinging insects were released into a group of unsuspecting kids


A pit bull saved an eight-year-old boy from a deadly bee attack by dragging him to safety by his trouser leg.

Jesse-Cole Shaver, from Oregon, was playing with a group of 10 friends in a local wood behind his house when one of the kids stepped on a rotten log, unleashing a swarm of bees.

The children were at the bottom of a steep embankment near their apartment building on Tuesday evening when the bees were released, stinging Jesse at least 24 times.

Most of the children managed to scramble back up the hill away from danger but Jesse was unable to get a secure footing.

Hero: Pit bull Hades saves Jesse-Cole from bee attack

But luckily, the boy's pit bull, Hades, was on hand to help and grabbed his trouser leg in order to pull him up the steep incline.

After the attack, Jesse told KPTV in Oregon: "Hades saw me and came and she dragged me up to the grass and then stopped and let me crawl on her back and then took me to mom."

Jesse's older sister, Jasmine Jones, was stung five times in what, for her, could have been a fatal attack.

The 14-year-old is allergic to bee stings and had to have two injections from an EpiPen to prevent her body from swelling.

The frightened mother, who did not wish to be named, said: "A couple of these kids could have got really sick or died."

Stung: Jesse and his sister Jasmine were taken to hospital after the bee attack

Both children were taken to Williamette Falls Hospital for treatment after the attack where doctors were still attempting to remove bee stings from the children's hair.

They were released from the hospital a few hours later. Hades was also stung but is also now fine.

Jesse's mom said that her son couldn't wait to get home and thank his dog for saving him.

The children have vowed never to go back down to the embankment again.
