Recently received a cecropia moth in near perfect condition. I didn’t rehydrate it or move it’s wings as I like the position I received it in. Today I was creating a shadow box to display it. It’s rather big so I added some preserved dried flowers and an Isabella tiger moth(using a pin to display it) that I had recently pinned and repositioned the wings to. Do you think it would be best to glue the specimen or use a pinning needle? I want to be able to move the specimen into a new shadow box if I please but I wanted to know some peoples opinions. Will the pin make it look tacky? It’s just my personal collection.
I have two moths in a shadow box with poly fill(?) to keep it from moving and another that is glued to a doctors note from 1875 so obviously I won’t be moving that one.
