Micromoth
March 4, 2008


Sunny and almost 40. I saw a tiny (probably 3-4 mm wingspan) tan moth flying over a creek at about 3:30 in the afternoon. It landed in the water, swam a few inches and managed to climb out of the water onto a protruding rock. Given the water temperature and the way I was dressed, I opted not to jump into the creek for a closer look.

You probably made a wise decision and not jumping in the creek! :) But, I understand the compulsion to try and get closer and get the photo. :)
