A dream I had...

Last night I dreamed I was in the garden and there were huge pod type cocoons. They were slightly transparent and I could see movement inside, of giant beautiful moths with decorative wings. When I woke up the dream was still clear in my mind and I went to take a look at the small cocoon in the jar that I found in the garden weeks ago. You may remember I posted about it and said that it had probably died, because it wasn't moving anymore. Even though I thought this I still decided to keep it and leave it in the jar, just in case. Well, it seems Mother nature had fooled me. This is what I found this morning....


The most beautiful Elephant Hawk moth had emerged!


It was truly a magical moment! And I am still amazed! Not only by the beauty of this moth, but the fact that the dream was so significant...!?!
Once released from the jar luckily it stayed still long enough to capture it on photo. Then I carried it outside and let it fly away.

Amazing! I can't stop smiling!

  20. One evening I watched moths hovering around some flowers drinking nectar. As I watched, they looked at me and we thought about each other. My scientist friend who studied moths said that their hyper sensitive antennae can pick up individual molecules from many miles away, and find the source. Beautiful creatures.
