Spring Beauty or Springbeauties (Claytonia virginica) - 10a

(Spring Beauty or Springbeauties (Claytonia virginica) - 10a) In this bee's eye view of the center of a half-inch spring beauty flower, we can see the five stamens splayed out over the center of each of the five petals and the pistil growing straight up from the center, with its three-sectioned stigma spread to receive the pollen grains.  There also appears to be a tiny insect, partially hidden, in the center of the spring beauty flower.

lamb-right lamb-left 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.
