Of course, this was much to the Rabbits' chagrin, as I normally spend time with Them in the early morning.
But it was early enough that it wasn't too terribly hot, so I thought, why not go outside and do a spot of reading before the Sun starts to fry the yard?
Out I went.
We usually keep a chair out in the yard. There is a particular spot I like to sit, right by our almond tree. It is a particularly calm and lovely spot I think, protected by Green Surroundings. As I sit there, I often see the Outdoor Bunnies hopping. If I sit still in the chair for long enough, the Birds cease to notice me and I get a good Bird Show as well. It is a Good Spot.

This particular morning, though, I went outside and the Sun was shining too much in my spot. The chair was drenched in morning Sun, and I was in the mood for shade.
I leaned down to pick up the chair and as I leaned over, I noticed something amazing.
There was a Beautiful Wing in the grass. A Moth Wing.
I bent down to pick it up and I realized there was another Wing!
FOUR WHOLE WINGS!
The Wings!! I found A Helpful Box to Put Them In.

I picked them all up. I wrapped them in a piece of paper and took them inside.
Now, I don't know what happened to the Little Body that the Wings were attached to. But my guess is that one of the Birds I like to watch....ummmmmm....had a snack that did not include Wings.
Instead, I got them. Wings. To honor and protect. Which I will do.
I feel honored by these wings. To have found all four seems like an honor to me.
A reminder of the Blessings of this Earth.
Thank you, Moth. Thank you, Earth.
