Today I took a walk, as I often do, and I was enchanted by all the butterflies.  I've always thought that the beauty of butterflies is one of the best arguments for the existence of God and his influence on the nature of the creatures around us.  What good is it to the butterfly to be beautiful?  Or what evolutionary benefit is there to us to seeing beauty in butterflies?

Anyway, when I finished my walk I got my camera and went back and took some pictures, and I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Well, the 3 coworkers that stopped by my desk on break were all quite amazed :) So i mentioned that someone else thought you could make a nice calendar - it was a universal "DEFINITELY!" :)

Just thought you might find their less-biased opinions interesting :)
