Moths I

People can overlook moths, taking them for an erratic cluster of fuzzy, creepy little wings around the porch light, but those scaly wings that distinguish them and give them their name (i.e. Order Lepidoptera which means “scaled wing”) come in almost innumerable intricate patterns and often in more color than a passing glance would reveal. They are not as beloved or celebrated as their typically diurnal comrades (i.e. the butterflies and skippers, the other members of Lepidoptera), but they have a varyingly subtle beauty that is all their own.
