Dedicated to the Preservation and Restoration of the Whole of Creation: Humans - Animals - Environment
"And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day" (Genesis 1:31)
On the sixth day of creation, God made them, and us!
(Pearl Crescent Butterfly (Phyciodes tharos) - 02) This enlarged photo of this pearl crescent butterfly does show the right antennal knob to be darker, indicating that this could be a male pearl crescent. In this photo, we can also see "feather-like structures" extending out from the thorax and sweeping back along the abdomen on top of the wings. We couldn't find any information about these structures in the literature; perhaps one of our readers could assist us with this. Please refer to "glf-butterfly-pcrescent2" when writing. This butterfly also seems to be covered with pollen grains, possibly from asters, which were in bloom and are their host plant.

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation. Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion. It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
