Yesterday a very alert 3 year old visitor named Ciana came to the Chateau and discovered this beautiful Moth hiding on an old tree trunk. As you can see it was very well disguised.
As we look around us it is easy to see the undeniable workings of a Designer far superior to our feeble selves. Nothing we can create will surpass this magnificent creature. Our greatest Jumbo jet or best designed motor vehicle might beat it in scale but not in intricacy and perfection.
Next I ask myself ……….what is the purpose of moths? Recently I watched a new series on the Life of Plants by David Attenborough. It is excellent and shows how many plants are pollinated by birds and insects including at night. Moths navigate by light and the moon I think and are therefore attracted to lights. This is cause for a lot of people not liking them. But if we can expand our view to see that they, like us, are here with a purpose which contributes to the larger cycle called LIFE we all benefit.
Now I have a new respect for moths and their beauty and I hope you have too ……thanks to my curious and very alert 3 year old visitor….. Ciana.
We can learn a lot from children.
