She pronounced she was “heartbroken” at the suspicion of having to put him down so motionless to fix it. Romy, a dress designer, said: “My work involves me hand-embroidering and hand-beading costumes in my studio so we felt very gentle doing this.”

Romy, right, who lives nearby Houston, Texas, pinned down the sovereign moth with a cloak hanger. She then used a concrete glue to insert the embellished wing of a identical one which recently died.

Romy, who is in her 40s, said: “The next day we tested to see if he wanted to fly outward and he did. On his first try he was around the garden, then he took a discerning rest on a bush.

“A few moments later, he was off again, drifting high, quick and confident. we was so vehement we cheered and my heart positively soared with him.”
