Yes the simple pattern and dark brown border is pretty, and also makes it easy to recognize.

Thankyou,took this one with my small HP Photosmart digital camera which was the only one
I had on me at the time.

I agree--when I started zooming in on the details of a moth--I became amazed at the details--and how perfect they were. You just know God had to use a fine point paint brush for that one. Well--maybe not--maybe he just spoke it into existance--anyway--it remains the same--AMAZING!

The least thing upset him on the links. He missed short putts because of the uproar of the butterflies in the adjoining meadows.x
