REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Looks so Innocent!

I liked the contrast of the diaphanous moth on the purple liatris in my mother's front yard.  My sister, however, informed me that the moth had developed from a worm that attacks apple trees (there are three crabapple trees in that same yard).   So... when you see the moth, the damage has already been done.   But the moth is still pretty! I'm linking up with Nature Footstep memes---in particular, Winged.

I think it is still very lovely and the contrast with the purple is just beautiful.

It is pretty - but too bad it damages apple trees - nature at work, I guess.

What a beautiful picture and the moth does look rather "ghostly" (easier to spell than that "d" word). :)
