All around us nature whispers the greatest tale ever told.
In sound, scent, vision, and touch this is one long glorious reveal.
It is a story of which we are a part, and if we wish, we can become deeply participative.
No tricks, gurus or otherworldly wisdom is required.
All nature asks of us is that we engage all of the senses with which we are blessed.
Here the Garden Tiger is telling its own unique tale. It is one of poison, season, and intent. It tells us that its food plant lies close, and the worn wings show that its time is nearly done.
