Last Light - Moth Audition

As I finished the machine quilting on this piece, I started to think about adding something for a focal point.  I happened to have these screen printed moths already cut out and they happened to be similar colors, so I auditioned them.........
I liked them, but did not really think they added  anything significant.  In fact, I found them sort of distracting from the point I wanted to convey - of the last light coming through the leaves.  I considered printing them in a different color - the black being too harsh and contrasty for the muted subtle look of this piece.  In the end, I abandoned the moths.
