A Mythological Moth!

As a fairy flies through the city of steel and stone, sometimes the forest seems so far.  But it doesn't have to grow through the concrete, the woods behind the park loom, and the plants on porches all say spring is here and so are the butterflies!  

In the parking lot I found the Polyphemus Moth, great guardian of the green with it's owl eyes...the messenger between gandalf and gwaihir in Lord of the Rings.  I carried it home and put it in our garden with a small bowl of fruit and water nearby.
