Knot Garden with Moth - detail: watercolour painting by Marion Shepherd, 2000 [7 of 14]

The moth is an Old Lady Moth, Dasypodia selenophora. It is found across southern Australia in gardens, parks and open forest. The wonderful blue, black, white and orange spots stand out from the brownish wings like glowing eyes. This was painted from a specimen found in a friend's garden.
