a place to showcase


One Fine Moth

I had a visitor in my courtyard the other day, poor thing couldn’t quite seem to get up off the ground. Its legs were wet, or perhaps injured, I don’t really know. But it struggled to get up and away, futilely beating its wings every few minutes, or as it summoned up the energy.  Didn’t help that he/she was a tad on the heavy side…
I, of course, had to get really close to get these shots, seeing as I don’t have a macro lens…

But it was huge. And a beauty 🙂

it did try...

I hope it managed to fly off, because I hate the idea of such a pretty thing being devoured by the ants…those relentless soldiers of my courtyard, agents of disposal.


Tell me which image looks better…this one or the previous one…?
