Cattail moth

This little gal is a style queen! Check out her eyelash skirt and poise in the spotlight. She even looks good through the condensation walking upside down on a plastic lid.

Last Sunday I put a cattail seed head in a petri dish with a lid so I could use it again for my next wetlands presentation. It did not occur to me that critters live in cattails, and they might not want to be in a petri dish for five days.

This post is a birthday gift to my sister, a former 4-H Style Queen herself, perfectionist seamstress and Miss Personality. She has a pitch pipe, not a proboscis.
