I came across this monarch butterfly
as it was on a flower
that was growing quite a height above me
next to a building...
the blue you see here was actually a window
just under the eave of the building.
The 12X zoom lens was fully extended.
I was very pleased with this capture,
not only of the gorgeous monarch
but also of the flower from its underside.
This photo is a great representation of my Christian faith.

you must always be displeased by what you are.
For where you are pleased with yourself
there you have remained."

“And this is the testimony:
God has given us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
He who has the Son has life;
he who does not have the Son of God
does not have life.”
