Hummingbird Moth with Transparent Wings

In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. 
It is the color of love.
Marc Chagall

Yes, beauty is the color of love. This magical moth could be directing an orchestral or blessing the flower.

Thank you for this beauty in word and photo.
