Moth hovering on a Mushroom (original art woodburning)
by Scott Ferry

The Mushroom: Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita, is a basidiomycete of the genus Amanita. Native throughout the temperate and boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, Amanita muscaria has been unintentionally introduced to many countries in the Southern Hemisphere, generally as a symbiont with pine and birch plantations, and is now a true cosmopolitan species. It associates with various deciduous and coniferous trees.
Arguably the most iconic toadstool species, the fly agaric is a large white-gilled, white-spotted, usually red mushroom, and is one of the most recognizable and widely encountered in popular culture.

The Moth: Sphecodina abbottii, or Abbott's sphinx, is a moth of the family Sphingidae. The species was first described by William John Swainson in 1821.
The underwings have a strong yellow band and in flight, the moth buzzes, appearing like a bee. The forewings are violet grey when fresh and have a "barklike pattern of swirling black lines" according to David Beadle and Seabrooke Leckie. At rest, they raise their abdomens and are well camouflaged on tree bark, looking like a broken branch.
Adults are bumblebee mimics and make a buzzing sound when feeding.

Adult Food: Nectar from flowers including honeysuckle (Lonicera), lilac (Syringa vulgaris), and Viburnum.
Habitat: Woodlands.
Range: Northern Florida, Mississippi, and Texas north to Nebraska.

This is an original illustration and wood burning on basswood by Scott Ferry. My burn signature stamp is on the front. The back has a metal hanger to place on the wall easily.

Size is 9"x8" and 1" thick

Beautiful and unique hand made piece. Good quality wood, gorgeous design and just the right amount of shine to the paint. Love that it is double sided. We have it hanging on our front door to enjoy seeing daily. Thank you so much for the craftsmanship!
