An exquisite fan
Fit for the opera
On hot, steamy evenings

A Rare Bird

Rare in New Zealand, with a population of just 100–120 birds, the elegant white heron or kĊtuku (Egretta alba modesta) is nevertheless common in India, Japan, China and Australia. With a long, slender neck, yellow bill and thin legs, white herons grow to 92 centimetres in length and 900 grams in weight. In flight their long neck is held kinked. During breeding their bill darkens and a veil of fine feathers extends beyond the folded wings and tail, accentuating their graceful profile. ~ Bernard

The Atlas Moth has the largest wing surface area of all moths.

Mangrove and wetland wildlife
World distribution: Asia and Southeast Asia.
Classification: Family Saturniidae (Silkworm Moths). This family has the largest moths with showiest wings.
It is so named because its wing patterns resemble maps. The Atlas Moth's wings have triangular transparent "windows" whose purpose we don't know. The wing tips are hooked and some say resemble a snake's head complete with eye, to scare off predators. ~ Bernard

March Equinox

Panoply of scent
Color, color everywhere
And not a daub too pink
