Many plumed moth
September 27, 2009
My intention to send you better pictures of the many plumed moth a good week ago fizzled when Josephine the cat ate my photo opportunity. Imagine my joy when I found another moth this evening in the bathroom! It sat very nicely for close-ups both on the cabinet top and the wallpaper border.
The tweezers give a good idea of how tiny that moth is; in the lighter picture, you can see that it is even wearing a little “coronet” to go with the sparkly wings; and the darker picture really brings out the shining copper sprinkles.
While this moth is fascinating to see against a lighted surface, its real beauty doesn’t show that way. I think these pictures might do the gorgeous little thing some justice.
Hi again Vera-Iratwo,
Thanks for thinking of us and sending in your wonderful images of another Many Plumed Moth.
