Fairy or Moth?

Such Beauty!

Charles de Lint--"Like legend and myth, magic fades when it is unused -- hence all the old tales of elfin kingdoms moving further and further away from our world, or that magical beings require our faith, our belief in their existence, to survive.That is a lie. All they require is our recognition."


John Lennon--"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now? Reality leaves a lot to the imagination."

I agree with them....... Two days in a row I photograph these moths. Who's to say they aren't really fairies......


  1. Amazing shots, Sue. About how big are these moths? I know someone took a photo of them and really thought it was a hummingbird. I can see why

  2. Congrats on the pics!!! I just saw and photographed my first hummingbird moth this year! I was so excited!! Great job, Sue!

  3. Very cool find, Sue!
