My name is Hannah old artist redhead, wood nymph, cat momma and all around animal lover. I post things relevant to myself and my likes. I do not claim these photos as my own unless stated otherwise.

The adult emperor moth (Saturnia pavonia) is a spectacular insect. Males have a complex pattern of grey, dark brown and orange markings on their upper forewings, with prominent eye spots...And he only emerges from his cocoon with great pain and struggle.  Like many of us. It takes struggle to succeed at anything. --Elva Cobb Martin
