  3. I had one of these bless my studio door once. I've also been blessed (?) with flying squirrels in my studio's rafters.

    I'm just a wee bit north of you, and hour north of asheville, at the foot of mount mitchell.

  4. Did you TAKE THIS PHOTO ????? If you did WOW ! x2 .
    Sometimes, when I see an image like this, I am reminded of some of the design similarities of night creatures and deep sea creatures.

    Always puts me in mind of our Creator as artist-designer-engineer. As if He was so joyful with a certain creative path He just had to revisit the subject!

  5. Ditto on Dani's comment. In a serious big way.

  6. Wow, what an elegant critter. The great thing about bugs is how they manage to seem both so fragile and so sturdy at the same time.

  11. thought i'd drop by to check up on trout - and happy to read that trout is doing better - hurrah - especially love the pic of her (him?) running about.

    of late, i've had that dog cravin' again, but i resist. not time for me yet to have a four-foot. i still miss my old bearded collie, treacle, who was sweeter than sweet and moved on to better pastures (filled with obedient sheep, no doubt) in 2003.

  12. hi everybody! i wonder if a nocturnal moth is okay if it is still out in the light when morning comes -or if it is dying. i also saw lots of butterflies this weekend and an unusual buckeye moth but it flew away before i could photograph it.

    thanks so much for all your comments.

    Trouts eyes are better but i still dont believe she has glaucoma. the drops made her eyes sink in -as opposed to the bulge that started the scare in the first place. i give her less drops than they prescribed and will have the pressure tested again next week. they were in the normal range last week.

  14. Beautiful bug. Sorry, you didn't get the farm truck you wanted.

  15. If Trout does not have glaucoma, what is the next possible diagnosis? Delighted to hear she is improved and back to full throttle around Chickory :-)

  16. So happy to hear that Trout is feeling better and see her running around in the photo; good luck with the tests this week. ♡
    love dianne. xoxo

  17. Glad to hear Trout is better - such good news!

    And I think the last moth I saw like that out in the day did die. They are incredibly beautiful - lovely photo.
