Bold Display

I had yet another wonderful day in paradise (my home) today. I hope you did, too. There was lots of warmth, swimming, reading, crocheting, chatting, an interesting webinar, and a bottle of wine, plus peaches, cream and ice-cream, all from the comfort of my home! Hmm, talking of comfort, maybe I'm getting too much into that groove, since the pounds are piling on!

Being at home, passing time in my yard allowed me to find this beautiful moth - it was striking, and made me think of a medieval shield with a bold cross emblem on it:



Isn't that exquisite? I've found out it's called Haploa clymene, native to eastern North America. What a beauty!




And now, I'm going to hop into my kayak in another attempt to spot Comet NEOWISE from across the lake ...

Wow, I've never seen a moth like that. Glad you are enjoying your day. I'm eating peanut m n m's and watching movies, haha. Not nearly as invigorating as your blissful, Maine lake day.

This was my first sighting of one of these - and so easily overlooked if I weren't walking in that particular part of the lawn, and looking down at my weeds!
