Wrinkled Wood : for Photo Hunter #124

No, its not the White Underwing Moth that I have chosen to represent the theme 'wrinkled' for this week's Photo Hunt, but rather its the wrinkled wood above that the moth is resting on. The wood didn't grow this way naturally, but as a result of a circular saw cut, the aged, graying wood looks like it is wrinkled!
.
The white stripe on the underwing of this moth might give you a hint as to how it acquired its name!

Thanks Michelle, I searched through my photo archives looking for something that looked wrinkled and was quite pleased when I found this. I had forgotten about Photo Hunt until I saw your butterfly post :-)

That is a beautiful moth...I really like the color of it....might be fun to do in fabric for a quilt :-) I like the "wrinkled" wood also. It is intereseting to see patterns like that made by the saw. The two together are a lovely match.

It sure does look wrinkled. Unique moth, too... It's great to see how many different perspectives on the word wrinkled there are. I took the obvious road, I think.

Beautiful critter! They are so undervalued! There are moths out there rivaling the most beautiful butterflies!

Cheers, Klaus

Nice moth and never would have thought about the woodgrain being so interesting.
