    I recently found a beautiful moth with non-metallic green wings that is still barly alive. I would like to mount it, but I know nothing of preservation and display of insects. Please help!

    If it's very large, you might want to scoop out some innards.

    Dessicate it. Got silica gel? You know those little "do not eat" packets.
