I witnessed a tragedy the other day.
As I left my Jeep to run a quick errand I stumbled upon a magnificent specimen of a Ceropia Moth in the parking spot next to me. Quickly, my camera was grabbed.
Sadly, immediately after I shot my pictures, (and decision to not interfere with it I.E.: relocate to a safe position) this glorious creation of nature was destroyed by another vehicle. Unaware of the creature in his parking space, he crushed her.
Fate of a Moth
Grace exuded through color
What another did made me pallor
as you opened your wings
common folk cares not for such things
puttering beetle of a machine
The hope of a dream.
