June 12, 2011. A butterfly flutters amid the flowers in Arizona’s Apache National Forest. One of the worst wildfires in the state’s history smolders nearby.

This week: A butterfly in the midst of the Arizona wildfire; balloons of peace and protest; the world’s tallest statue of Christ; demonstrations in Greece; a “kissing couple” amongst the rioting hockey fans in Vancouver; a flaming blimp; a capsized catamaran; a spectacular crash at the 24-hour Le Mans endurance race; and a lunar eclipse.
