A stunningly beautiful moth taking a languorous rest after a long period of wild activity during the hours of darkness; meandering flights and getting drunk on midnight nectar. Observing its sharp figure makes one think of the wind-cutting form of a Stealth Bomber. The colors of its fur is a gorgeous spectrum in the range of cream to brown; evoking the image of a grande dame New Yorker in a mink coat, walking towards a limousine from her apartments in Park Avenue. Indeed, moths are singularly pretty winged insects with the exquisite qualities nature encourages us to admire.
