Wander And Wonder: Day 7 (#565)

My work week at Westport Beach store consists of 3 days for 3 hours each day.  I have set up a massage studio here in the park, as well, offering Chi massage to guests and locals.  Both jobs keep me pleasantly engaged.

Today was a store work day, 9am to 12 noon.  So after an early morning walk and wander at Abalone Point, I walked down the hill to the tiny store.  Reaching for my key to unlock the door I spotted this creature, this absolutely stunning creature on the screen door.

I immediately got my iPhone and captured some closeups of the Ceanothus Silk Moth.  It lives but a week or two and has atrophied mouth parts so it cannot eat.  Silk moth’s sole purpose is to mate, lay the next generation’s eggs and pass on.

I wonder if Silk Moth is happy and enjoys its brief life here on Earth.
