Talk about the miracle of life

It's found in pictures like these:

Yes, bugs.  More specifically, bugs' eyes.  But how absolutely breathtakingly awesome.  I mean, wow.  Think of the lumbering robots or the puddles of smudge that scientists brag about when they say they've "Created" something.  And all from materials already produced.  Then look at this, a mere insect.  I'm no insectphile, in fact it's my desire to avoid insects that prevents me from journeying to places I would otherwise love to travel like Africa or the Amazon.  For that matter, it's part of what made my sojourn in Florida such a drag.  The state had roaches that took flying lessons (the hot, muggy, 120% humidity was the other problem along with no real changes of the seasons).  Nonetheless, insects are part of God's interwoven plan of creation, and when you look at images like this, you just have to pause before casually grabbing that next flyswatter.

“Who is this that darkens counsel
By words without knowledge?
“Now gird up your loins like a man,
And I will ask you, and you instruct Me!
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding,
Who set its measurements? Since you know.
Or who stretched the line on it?
“On what were its bases sunk?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together
And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Job, 38.2-7
