Twas a warm and rainy day, the kind where you walked with head down to avoid getting wet. Unless you have an umbrella it doesn't happen so might as well walk with eyes wide open. On this particular day I'm glad I did walk with eyes downcast or I would have missed this beauty.
Sweet heavens! This moth was sheltered on a step doing its best to hide from the rain. When I saw it I stood in awe, seriously stood and stared. What creature could this be I pondered. The call went out and Judy recognized it as an Imperial Moth. I have never seen such colours before and I've spent a lot of time in woods but this one was in an industrial area of town.
Perhaps blown in by the wind its beauty will remain with me forever. I can't express how speechless I was seeing this lovely. I exhaled and smiled forgetting the day and gave thanks for the glory of nature.
P.S. Another was found the next day. It had spots on its wings instead of stripes. And if you zoom in you will see the rain drops on its cloak.
Like your favorite flooded cave, your kindness is deep. You have a strong work ethic and are not afraid to hop to it to get the job done. Far from a flaky frog, you don’t jump to conclusions. Ever since you were a tadpole, you’ve been easygoing and likeable and are a good leader without being mossy, so other frogs lean on you without knowing it. Thanks to Michelle at Rambling Woods :)
Tsk tsk tsk
