A Rosy Maple Moth for Ruby Tuesday Two

 Sometimes when you see something pretty and soft you just want to reach out and touch it. Like when I saw this rosy Maple Moth snuggled up againt the bannister railings of my doorstep yesterday morning. Yesterday morning I only saw one, but soon there will be many  around my steps in the mornings to come.  We have a few Silver Maples on our proprty here and apparently that maple species attracts these pretty moths.

They look so soft! I have a silver maple and will have to watch for these. I don't think I have ever seen one before here.
