WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Scale.”

While roaming around in a resort garden in Shantiniketan a couple of weeks ago I noticed this tiny moth resting on the leaves of this common calendula which seemed so big compared to this beautiful little creature!

“I can give not what men call love,
But wilt thou accept not
The worship the heart lifts above
And the Heavens reject not,—
The desire of the moth for the star,
Of the night for the morrow,
The devotion to something afar
From the sphere of our sorrow?”

– P.B. Shelley
