Oh this is so beautiful. There is so much details in her. It's a lovely creature splattered with art. Is she alive by the way? Is that a styrofoam she sitting on?

I didn't know a moth could be that beautiful.

Greetings,

Yes it was very much alive, just resting under
the canopy of the swinging garden seat.I like
your observation that it is splattered with art,
but I add that it has been painted with loving hands:)

The natural habitat of this species must be some old codgers vest - where it's perfectly camouflaged amongst the nicotine stains, cigarette burns and frayed edges - the ugly turned beautiful.x

How bizarre,but amusing and imaginative.Their
natural habitat is in woodland areas,and this
one is a male,as it's antennae is not feathery.
Speak to you soon XX

I get these a lot (you wouldn't think so down in town), but I do. At least I think they're these! Always thought they were interesting. Still squash one if I see it though, :) Just don't like them getting in wardrobes and such... But it's nice photo. Never realized the swing was white at the top either, rrssss XX

In other words love, they are better seen on a photo rrrsss!!!Don't think they will be these moths that you see actually,but I supose it is
possible.XX

psychelyn said...

True, true :) That's why I love nature so much. It's beauty is splendid, created by the Greatest Artists of All.

Nice photo, we get these HUGE moths in summer, sometimes they rest on our front door........

Breathtaking said...

Thankyou,They will always try to find a nice shady place to get out of the sun,where ever that might be.Perhaps they are just waiting for a chance to fly inside, and find a wardrobe to hide in!!
