Found Art: Moth Wing (May 3, 2010)

Another piece of found art. This one is unusual in that it landed on my doorstep, as if it wanted to be photographed. A strikingly colored moth that looks very much like a leopard skin. Beautiful.

A little Internet research suggests this is a Mexican tiger moth (Notarctia proxima). It looks more like a leopard to me--but that appears to be its name. Should I tell this Mexican moth that this is Sonoma County?
