molting

I got some better pictures of a caterpillar molting.  This time it was hanging in a way that I was able to photograph it from behind instead of from the side, like the last time I got pics.

This is what the molted skin looks like after it has been shed.

faith

Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.

painted lady

I found this caterpillar in my flowerbed and I decided to put it in a jar and see what it would change into.

By the next day it had formed this cocoon.  About a week or so later, I discovered this…

a painted lady butterfly.  I tried to get a shot of it from the side, with it’s wings closed because the underside of the wings are as beautiful as the top side, but I couldn’t get a shot.  I do love my monarchs, but this was kind of a nice change.

something to think about

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps, if you are not willing to move your feet.

Alfalfa

I found many different shades of alfalfa this summer.  My fave, of course, is purple.
