I'm guessing this is a moth, but I've never seen one like it before. I enjoy looking at the bug displays at the 4-H fairs, but even there, don't recall seeing one like this.

Thank you Father for letting me see such a beautiful moth; though we know in Heaven that those moths won't destroy. Hurray! [Or perhaps they won't eat so much as to destroy or perhaps they will just *live* and not eat at all.] Smiling
