  1. Your moths are all so cute. I just love their little “noses”. I had a snout-nose butterfly land on me while visiting TX and was so enthralled.

    • I love how the noses give them such character. I usually forget that the nose isn’t actually part of the head but are actually fuzzy palps; it just looks so much like a snout.

      Speaking of snout, would love to see a snout-nosed butterfly. They only rarely occur here in Ontario.
