...this morning...on my front door...


...look what I found on my front door when I stepped out to get the paper this morning...it's a Luna Moth or Actias Luna...and I remember putting one in a shoebox when I was in first grade...which we found similarly clinging to the bricks on our way to school one morning...we quickly made a tissue bed for it in a box and I proudly carried it to school...I'm sure everyone was as fascinated by it as I was...we set the open box outside in the evening and the moth was gone the next morning...I haven't seen one of these alive in years...

...wishing you all a lovely start to your week!
