Wordless Wednesday – A Sleeping Beauty

This moth was sleeping:

So I slowly opened up its wing to reveal this colorful buggah!

  1. A sleeping moth won’t move unless it’s really bothered. I remember reading about a sleeping moth and that if you were really gentle you could open it’s wings while it was sleeping as long as you don’t use your fingers as the oil will due harm to the wings.

    I used two toothpicks and slowly pried them apart. It took about 15 seconds to open them that far. I didn’t want to push my luck so i stopped opening anymore and went and grabbed my camera.

    It was gone the next time I went out to see it.

  2. That is cool! Why didn’t it move?
