It Fluttered by …

Crimson Speckled Footman.


Don’t often see this moth. But a treat when it pays us a visit.

  1. Is that patterning meant to be camo, or is the wee crittur throwing out a challenge saying “Eat me! — If you dare …”?

    The sort of challenge to make a circumspect predator stop and think “Hold on, something ain’t right …”

  2. Nature is something special. I have to admit if I seen this next to me in the yard without having known they exist, I would have thought someone spiked my Rum with booze. Good booze. Great shot Ark. I never realized insects came in such a wide range of colors and shapes. Have you ever thought of lending your photos to a nature writer or to an insect center? They are well good enough. Those places and people need pictures, they might as well pay you. Hugs


      1. Your daughter is smart and talented. I think a book would be grand. Do insects make good coffee table book subjects? Or a combined book by your entire family, a sort of each takes three pictures and writes short stories about them and combine them all together. Oh I just hit on a grand idea. You get along so well with children, you could take a bunch of your photos to a school class, like maybe 6th grade ( 12 yr olds ) and the teacher can have a class assignment for the kids to do an essay on the picture they get handed or select. You take all the essays ( after their graded so the kids get class credit ) and combine them in a book. The kids, parents, the school would go crazy for a copy of the book! So you will have other schools wanting to work with you on the same type project. Good luck. Hugs
