Ups and Downs

From my photographer’s perspective, this Julia Heliconian butterfly looks good up or down. 

Unlike most butterflies, the Julia isn’t restricted to feed on nectar.

Their ability to consume pollen provides amino acids allowing them to live longer than many butterflies. 

That makes me think of the ups and downs of the human diet.

Dietary needs are a little different for each person, but I’m fairly certain God did not design most of us to eat potato chips whose ingredient list contains more chemicals than food.

Hmmm, maybe He gave me a body that thrives on potato chips.
