A little late but what else is new? I’ve been missing out on Popinjay the last few weeks so hey, at least I’m getting it up – right? =P

This week’s Popinjay photo prompt is “Dainty.” I had planned on taking a picture of the roses my husband bought me for our anniversary on Sunday. But they were left at my mother-in-law’s house until yesterday and then I noticed that a lot of other people had the flower idea, too. ;0)

And then this flew in our school room today:


THAT.. Is a Red-tailed Specter Moth.


Tiny little thing. Drama Queen gingerly picked it up and tried to put it back out the door, though it flew back in and took up permanent residence on our school room wall. Her hand was all shiny and shimmery with pale silvery sparkles.

Talk about dainty. You have to be so careful not to hurt their wings!

Their pattern, which is difficult to distinguish can be clearly seen in the images at Bug Guide. Aren’t they beautiful?

You can link up your own “dainty” image to Popinjay at michellependergrass.com. =)

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
