Pressed fern, Cut moth

This isn’t actually a cut moth, as far as I’m aware, no moth in existence goes by that name. If it does, I hope it’s on its way to the hospital and soon be called ‘moth with plaster’.

The reason I call it the cut moth is simple. I ended up cutting out a section in the wings for the prints. Why? Couldn’t tell you.
