Damsel in Distress
What a lovely surprise!!
This unexpected visitor was spotted in my tiny garden last evening.
As I approached near, it didn't fly away..instead it climbed onto my fingers.. unsteadily
Strange, I thought, then I realized it has a broken wing :(
If you see from the photo below, it is the left wing which had a tear.
Poor fella..cos I really don't know how to deal with this.
It was resting on my Duranta when I took this picture.
I have been reading lots of garden adventures lately on butterflies and admire each one of them. But never thought I would see one in my own garden!
I was about to take more pictures when I turned my back and it was gone! Where did it go?
Did a thorough search in the garden but can't find it anywhere.
Lucky thing there is no "Tom or Jerry" in the house to tear it apart.
Butterflies are such fragile creatures...
Wherever it may be right now, I hope it's in safe hands..Amen.
Thanks to Andrea, Autumn Belle and Lrong for identifying this as a moth.
