This photo was taken October 10, 2004 at Hidden Lake Gardens in
Tipton, Michigan.  We had been out enjoying the park, run by
Michigan State University, and we were just about ready to sit down
and have lunch.  I was putting the camera away as I approached the
picnic area when I noticed this insect sitting on the flower.  It was very
patient with me as I moved in to take several photos.  Then, I left it in
peace and hoped that I had not disturbed it much.  I think that the
insect is an Ailanthus Webworm Moth (Atteva Punctella).  This photo
was one of my first big hits amongst my fans (my family and wife),
and continues to be a favorite of ours.
