Welcome Spring


Welcome Spring! I'm a bit giddy over this recently acquired engraving of various moth species and their caterpillars. The hand-tinted beauty is from Der Schmetterlingsammler by Dr. Julius Hoffmann and was published in Stuttgart, Germany in 1887. After growing up in a tropical climate I'm always very ready to welcome this particular change of season.
