Change is the handmaiden Nature requires to do her miracles with. – Mark Twain

Handmaiden Moth (2a)

Handmaiden moths, with their striking colors and transparent wings, mimic venomous wasps in their body shape and the position in which they hold their wings. They are, however, harmless and beautiful creatures, day flying members of the Arctiidae or Tiger moth family—seen here performing their domestic duties in true handmaiden manner in the flower gardens of Karatu, Tanzania.
