"Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt. Matt 6: 20"

I saw this moth floundering in a pail of water where it accidentally flew into and it went limp like it had died... I scooped it out of the water to dry on a brick and it came back to life.. I thought it was rather pretty and looked more like a butterfly than a moth, After it got its strength back it flew away from my hand and it seemed grateful to be alive.

Best View in light box! Thanks!
