Over at Dutch Goes The Photo!, the photo prompt is “bug”. I couldn’t have asked for a better prompt. XD If it’s okay, I’m going to do multiple entries, because I have a a lot of bugs.
This whole post is dedicated to moths. 😀 I love moths. Sometimes I leave lights on at night just to attract them. This is a collection of some I captured last year and this year. The one with the cross design was identified by Jamie (thank you again!) as a clymene moth. 🙂 The others I have no idea what they are, but I really like them. 😊
My favorite is probably the clymene moth, with the white and black speckled one (reminds me of a dalmatian!) being second favorite, and the yellow and pink one in third. 🙂 However, I really love those big Luna moths (the green and yellow ones).
It amazes me that God didn’t stop at a few varieties of moth; He painted the wings of many different kinds and colors. So many!!! I love the variety! 😍 In many, I see that they are supposed to blend into tree trunks, but some have such color to them that I’d expect from a butterfly. I look forward to discovering more this year. You should be able to click for a closer view. 🙂
