Moth fashion trends

The postman arrived from America yesterday(well, the post did), with a much appreciated early birthday present. The subtle hints that I have been dropping over the last few months have finally borne fruit. Small parcels are always the best...
Mine contained a new camera.
Since I am someone who cannot see very well, I need a camera with a MENSA level IQ which can take decisions for me. That way, I can point it at things which might be interesting and then have a chance to really see them later on a screen. Mysweet has done his research well, and I am delighted.

This little chap showed up in the evening.

I think the colour must have attracted it to Mysweet's Kooldrums. It must have known it would look good there.
I like the way it has jammed a foot between the notes to hang on.

That's a heck of a bug!

And is it that candy apple red? What a perfect gift!

What a wonderful way to see.

Mrs C I love the colours and have never seen the like...but then I dont meet many moths
M-l I am so pleased with it
Amy I have the purple one...and love it
Zhoen I am so happy to have a camera that doesnt demand perfect vision from its operator

Observe how Slugman becomes Mysweet with the advent of an early birthday present! I shall look up the moth and try to ascertain its species.

Keep on having fun with the camera.
