A pale monster, the green color of an alien, visited me one evening while I was doing nothing much. It was a rather small monster. Actually, it was a moth - the biggest moth I’ve ever seen. At first I thought it was Tinkerbell coming to take me to Never Never Land…a girl can dream, can’t she?
Apparently attracted to the light, it was trying to find a way into my house. During it’s futile attempts to penetrate the great glass door, I stood watching from inside, close to the glass, and made a valiant attempt to take a picture. But like a hummingbird, it never stopped moving. I was intrigued and curious. Just the other day Alan had pointed out a tiger swallowtail butterfly. Not much of a lepidopterist, I thought he was pulling my leg with that name: tiger swallowtail? Sounds like something of an oxymoron, don’t you think?
I got a bird’s eye view of my visitor – another incredible example of nature, but the photo I got looks more like… Tinkerbell.
