"Moths, the jewels of the night, have always fascinated me. I am inspired by the feathery light texture on their wings so fragile & thin, here captured in Sterling, in the round. In the summer evenings as I shut the outdoor lights to retire, there is always one hovering near the light, the Moths are always drawn to the light! " --Teresa
