Twenty Plume Moth
(Alucita hexadactyla)

With lacy wings spread out wide
delicate purples and white
a cloak made up of feathers
fanned in the evening light

long antenna angled down
matching the line of the wing
slender legs helping in flight
caught on the breezes of spring

fluttering among flowers
appears suspended in mid air
this strikingly beautiful moth
spreading its plumes with great flair!
