Mysterious Scents

A stealth bomber in no hurry,
resting from a game of hide and seek,
on the trail of mysterious scents.

    Delicate beauty, drawn to the light. Amazing structure. I found a petrified one yesterday on the outside of my garage, looked perfect, but this snappy dresser is better looking than mine was!

    Thanks Diane. Moths or butterflies, which are prettier?

    He does look like a stealth bomber! I like how you captured him to display his form with the flower surrounding the body and the beautiful soft green surrounding the head. Great color and texture. Nicely done!!

    Great shot!
