Tiger Moth

Today when I stepped outside the back door to go about the morning chores, I was greeted by a sweet visitor waiting for me by Sylvester's food bowl.


We have a lot of critters out here, and I've seen some really beautiful butterflies and moths. This guy caught my eye because of his striking graphic wing pattern.


After I snapped a few pictures, I pet him lightly on his wing and he stretched out a bit to reveal something even more breathtaking.


How gorgeous is that?! If I were a fashion designer he would be perfect inspiration for a garment (maybe I'm watching too much Project Runway?).

I've said it before and I'll say it again, nature never ceases to amaze me!

  4. That is really cool, but I honestly can't say it would ever occur to me to pet a moth LOL. Hey, see what I would have missed out on! :) [#TALU]
