Sighting Record 1148966

Observation Notes: 
I found it while raking leaves. It was just barely alive but not noticeably injured. I'm thinking it was because of the cold that it was on its way out. Very beautiful but sad that it was dying. I put it on a paper towel bed on my patio and it passed by morning.
