Glowing colours

Lines from a very popular hymn are,

He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

The preceding lines are about flowers and birds. The lines came into my head as I was looking for a photo to use for the Glow photo challenge from the Daily Post. I noticed that red admiral butterflies are colourful and have tiny wings! They were enjoying the Michaelmas daisies.

The hymn is All things bright and beautiful. (Words by Cecil Frances Alexander)
