Moths, not Butterflies

"By ethical conduct towards all creatures, we enter into a spiritual relationship with the universe."

- Albert Schweitzer, The Teaching of Reverence for Life.



I think small and big creatures find our yard their safe haven. Often we find different kinds of them outside, looking at peace especially in the morning.

They make the narrow shaded area of our yard their shelter from the rain and treat the bench or anything outside their bed through the night. Not always anyway. These photographs were captured this morning. Noticed them on their own spots - one on the hanging plastic, several on the wooden bench and a cute green one already awake and playing in one of the recycled pots then hopped onto the plants.

It felt "weird" that there were several of them today as if they had a "meeting" last night (ha ha!) But maybe because we never do wrong to them so they keep showing up. I am happy too that they never harmed us so it is okay. It is like we co-exist in harmony in this place and none of us is a threat to another. Hopefully it stays that way.

Staying true to what the English Proverbs say, "LIVE and LET LIVE."

I do not know the specific names of these but they are not "butterflies" as my wife "mistakenly" called them today so I corrected her saying they are moths. It made her laugh so loud (haha). She also hopes to see how a caterpillar turns into a moth. I joked that she should keep one caterpillar in a bottle and watch it every minute until it becomes one (haha).

That is all from me today and thank you.

To your bliss today!

When I was a children's book seller, I read a whole book on the differences between moths and butterflies.

All I really remember is that the wings open in different directions.

Found you on listnerds!

That is interesting to learn. We rarely see these moths fly. Thank you for coming over from listnerds :)

Very nice collection you have found @farmboy-boss.
Hopefully, they are not there to lay eggs and produce worms that eat your crops.
