Artist's Description

This handsome Poplar Hawk Moth decided to visit just as I was packing away Saturday night after trapping for a couple of hours,. I caught him, popped him in a tub in the dark shed in my York garden for a few minutes and then asked him to pose for me. He obliged, but didn’t want to leave me. I had to forcibly remove him from my hand.
Poplar Hawk Moths do not feed as adults, you may notice the lack of a proboscis. He’s quite a big moth, with a wing span of 35-40mm

Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, love.
Hafiz حافظ

Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.

“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
—Saadi (1184–1283)
