Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4: 4

On our walking trail today in the woods I saw lots of wild common milkweeds and Greater Fritillaries butterflies pollinating them. The milkweed flowers bloom from June to August and are enjoyed by moths, butterflies, bees and other insects.

Thank you very much Saroj Swain for your nomination for this photo, 6/23/2016. Appreciated!!!

Thank you to the JPG staff and everyone for photo of the week ...I am thrilled!

    Thank you all very much for the kind response on this picture...It is like an adventure to walk in the woods to see the wildflowers blossom over night after rain that hadn't opened the day before and a special treat to capture the butterflies and flowers together!
