Wilderness night scene in progress

I've now attached the luna moth and the other night moth to our night scene.  I need at least one more critter here, and a couple more for the crocheted daytime scene one, since all the critters I made have migrated to the other two locations.  I'm just a helpless prawn in the face of this tide...



As you see, I refrained from stitching a body for the luna moth, since I'm making a suggestion of a moth, rather than a botanically exact representation, which would be a bit too literal for the purpose of this piece.  I did similarly with the blue butterfly on the daytime scene, and she looks light and interesting, so I continue to like that decision.

this is just elegant. when I first saw the background you did for that black fabric, I wondered what would come out of it, and this couldn't be righter. If that isnt a word, it is now. =)

Just another example of a piece telling you what it wants. It's a hard thing to learn to listen and not struggle against the tide.

Being a helpless prawn seems to be serving you very well. The bodiless moth works well. So delicate.

That background looks fab - like an illuminated tree trunk. The moths look very much at home.
