wow !! how big is it ??
really quite small, about an inch
it looks huge in the picture ! via pinterest I came across a lot of insects I’ve never seen before and I am overwhelmed by them, such variety, such beauty and some are really BIG !
All I can say is, “Wow!” I’ve never seen such a moth!
That is a gorgeous capture indeed… prostration in prayer seems to suit all creatures!
I would like to research it. Where and when was the photo taken.
Worthy of close attention and a poem.
The fur on the side reminds me of cow hide, and the shape of a bull’s head mounted on a wall.
Thank you so much for sharing nature’s wonders.
Lovely description, in prayer… never have I seen a moth like this and did not know they existed, so thank you for sharing this amazing creature.
I’ve never seen such a thing. It did remind me of cowhide at first. I like your framing, too.
Your poem is mystical and esoterically descriptive. Wonderful and I thank you for this gem to begin my day.
Isn’t that absolutely special ! What we can notice in macro photography !
Very unusual find.
OMG, this is WONDERFUL!
It looks otherworldly. Beautiful and strange!
Wonderfully described and illustrative capture!
Prayers happen whether we say them or not, evidently. This is wonder-full !!
Very nice and beautiful.
Extremely interesting and intriguing. I loved it. Come see me and read about some Damsels in Distress. Everyone likes the ladies in need of a rescue or finding that God is always the Rescuer in Chief. jlheman1945
Yes, prostrate, exactly! Beautiful imagery, beautiful image!
