Nature's Place

Green Damsel on Yellow

This Damsel came to the light I keep on outside at night and like most creatures attracted to light it fluttered wildly around it. The Damsel is about 3mm wide, eye to eye, very small.

The light is so designed, close to a low ceiling, nothing will land on it so what I do is hold the flower under the light and encourage something to land on the flower. It can take some time before something is obliging but when it is it usually stays for a while, or it does eventually.

So many creatures have landed on it recently I am thinking I need to change colour now, or get some different flowers.

Too much of the same or similar invites familiarity and that is the death of the new.
