Blue Crackers

29 07 2013

I’ve previously written about grey crackers and included video of the sound they make, but recently, we had a colorful blue cracker visit in addition ot the grey crackers.  The blue cracker is a mottled blue with a white stripe on each wing when the wings are open, and is orange and black on the underside (which I think is an unusual combination of different bright colors)  Here is a shot of the underside:


And here it is from the top:


(not to be confused with the Mexican blue wing I showed you in a previous post about the butterfly farm)

And this blurry picture (sorry for the quality – clear fence, fuzzy subject – duh) is to prove that both are the same butterfly:


I sing the almighty power of God,

that made the mountains rise,

that spread the flowing seas abroad,

and built the lofty skies.

I sing the wisdom that ordained

the sun to rule the day;

the moon shines full at God’s command,

and all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord,

who filled the earth with food,

who formed the creatures thru the Word,

and then pronounced them good.

Lord, how thy wonders are displayed,

where’er I turn my eye,

if I survey the ground I tread,

or gaze upon the sky.

There’s not a plant or flower below,

but makes thy glories known,

and clouds arise, and tempests blow,

by order from thy throne;

while all that borrows life from thee

is ever in thy care;

and everywhere that we can be,

thou, God, art present there.

by Isaac Watts
