  1. Another fine entry in the category “Moths are beautiful too, not just butterflies”. While maybe not as showy in most cases, the pattern and colors of moths are truly lovely…well, maybe with the exception of the bird dropping moths. 🙂

    • 🙂 Thank you, Steve 🙂 From a young age I have always has a fascination for moths and other small critters (I think you probably guessed that already 😉 and moths have always held a particular interest for me.
