A Periphoba moth, a few seconds after emerging from its cocoon near the continental divide in Monteverde, Costa Rica. We happened to come across this little guy as we were hiking through the mossy dwarf forest at 1400 meters, and we paused a while to watch his wings unfurl and his form take shape. In just a few minutes, he was looking like a full-grown healthy moth, and so we left him to whatever moth business he was going to attend to that day.
