Angle Shades Moth (Phlogophora meticulosa)

This distinctive moth
clinging to the stem
with its wings at rest
a beautiful gem

Its angled patterns
of purple and brown
on a cream background
that at rest hang down

with two dancing grebes
on its upper wing
facing each other
imagine them sing !

sheer beauty on wings
like draped silken cloth
fringed by a lace frill
such an awesome moth

sweeping antenna
like whiskers, so long
such angled patterns
very clear and strong

this beautiful moth
that`s perched here at rest
seen around our land
nature at it`s best
