Pearl Crescent Butterfly (Phyciodes tharos) - 01
(Pearl Crescent Butterfly (Phyciodes tharos) - 01) We had a hard time trying to specifically identify this butterfly.   The color markings are almost identical to the northern crescent butterfly, but according to the literature, their flight times are mid June through July, and we took this photo in September, while the pearl crescent's flight times are from April through November.  The pearl crescent butterfly has a yellow band in the outer (lighter color) area of the forewings; however, according to the literature, the males are orange, as this one, and the literature goes on to say that the antennal knobs of the males are usually black.  Thus, we have qualified our identification, which in no way limits our enjoyment of the wondrous variations in God's creation.

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.
