"It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretch out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in. Isaiah 40:22 "

Three insects who are little.....
Bee , grasshopper and beetle~
Created to give life thru' God....
To the Wildflower Golden Rod .....

As they gathered together today
The wind almost blew them away
Each shared flower table to eat....
And the Golden rod tasted sweet

Circle of life each brings
Though insects are small......
To weigh in the scale of things.....
God made room for them all
┬ęPoetry by me, AJP

I shot this picture in the woods this afternoon...and it was very windy outside....which made shooting pictures a bit of a challenge but waited until the wind stopped briefly...

Wow! Thank you so much to the JPG Staff for the spotlight 9/26/2019...It is much appreciated!

    Thank you for the comments and congrats....When I shot this picture I was so impressed that
    no matter how much the wind was blowing the flowers on the 25th, the insects held on and didn't lose their grip..Thank you again also to the JPG staff for the spotlight!
