Impromptu Nature Study

Last night, while my two girls were playing in our backyard they discovered an injured moth. Lexi is convinced that a bird had gotten it and eaten part of the moth’s wing. So, the moth has been living inside a bug cage since last night. It even went on a fieldtrip today to Lexi’s Friday school class. I don’t think it will make it much longer but, Lexi is doing everything in her power to help her injured moth including feeding it fresh flowers and sugar water.

Edited to add: We turned our moth loose last night. He was still doing well and we placed him on an azalea bush in our front yard.
