Simple beauty

Mid-day walks give me a burst of energy, reset my mind, and let me come back to solving my work puzzles refreshed. It was a beautiful day today, a good day for a short early afternoon stroll.

A stand of goldenrod drew my eye as I walked by. Strong yellow flowers, with a triangular patch of white. What is that? Ah, a moth, wings folded up so that the underside of its wings was almost all that I could see. White, with a single gold dot along the edge of each wing, bright yellow antennae, a lighter shade than the flower on which it was perched. I'm so glad I stood and watched for a few minutes, because the moth treated me by opening its wings to show me a splash of blue and brown decorating the top of the wings. Beautiful.
