The Painted Lady is a butterfly that breeds on the edge of the Sahara, flies across the Mediterranean Sea, over the Alps and the Pyrenees, stopping only to lay eggs along the way.  She then flies across the English Channel to Scotland and then north to the Orkney Islands where she dies!  A God who could put such knowledge in the tiny brain of a bird can surely fill our hearts with spiritual knowledge and wisdom.
