I decided to draw a frog this week, so did a Google image search for “frog,”  The red-eyed tree frog kept popping up! He is a colorful frog star.

I am so thankful for a colorful world.

Peace in the Valley

This week’s Envelope Art…IMG_3494.jpg

There will be peace in the valley for me some day, 
there will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray, 
there’ll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble I’ll see, 
there will be peace in the valley for me. 

–Thomas Dorsey

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4

 

Butterfly Wings

How do you distinguish a moth from a butterfly? Keeping in mind that there are exceptions, below is a list of physical and behavioral differences.

  • Moths are nocturnal. Butterflies are out and about during the day.
  • When at rest, butterflies will fold their wings back. Moths flatten their wings against their bodies or spread them wide.
  • During pupal stage, a moth cocoon is made of silk. A butterfly emerges from a chrysalis, which is hard and smooth.
  • Butterfly antennae are smooth and have a ball at the tip. The moth has antennae that are feathery or like a comb.
