    Seen this beautiful creature in my path on a walk way. I picked her up because at first I thought she was no longerliving. Anything but dead she was. She fell from my hand to the belly of my shirt and continued to crawl up my arm where she/he stopped and started to gracefully flutter her wings. I was able to see all sides of this moth. Today is a blessed day!
