you know...i think it's pretty cool when your clients save
BUGS for you.
i saw one of my regular clients this morning...
and as soon as i walked in the door...she could barely contain herself.
she was so excited because she had found a dead moth
and couldn't wait to hand it over!
now we were both excited...gawking at this huge brightly colored moth.
my client is 85...and an artist herself.
she can appreciate the little things that inspire us.
the little things...like bugs. bones. driftwood. rocks. shells.
i had no idea what kind of moth this was.
so after her massage, i raced home to look it up.
it's a Regal Moth, also known as a Royal Walnut Moth.
they're nocturnal and can have a wingspan of up to 6" !
yeah, SIX INCHES! wow!
this one is about 3" across. it might be a male because the females are larger.
then i mounted it with pins on a piece of styrofoam.
well, i have to get ready to head out to another appointment...
but in case you're not familiar, i just wanted to end with pictures
of just a FEW of the artsy creations i've used WINGS for...
...hope you're having a happy day...
have a safe journey & enjoy the ride!
