Beautiful red moth on outside of glass door
The moth without the cat (yesterday's photo of the day, CLICK HERE), and in full glory
A lovely Garifuna lady told me that in her culture, legend has it that these moths are ancestors who have come to look over you and care for you.
She also said that under their wings the moths have markings that are clearly readable as numbers. She said that some folks believe if you buy those numbers in the boledo you will win.
I'm looking under the wings next time!
