Day 14

This little guy is our visitor today.

This moth has been standing on the kitchen’s floor, and  no matter how close I get with the camera, it doesn’t move at all, like he is not afraid of being touched or photographed; this is the kind of models that photographers really need 😉

Some curious facts about moths:

Moth antennae are either feather like, or a hair like filament; they have hairy bodies to keep their body temperature necessary for flight.

In colder climates some moths can have a 2 year life circle.

Male moths have larger antennae than females, which is good for detecting the pheromones released by females.

The “Luna Moth” is born without a mouth, never eats or drinks.

Sounds incredible, but moths can navigate by the stars.

Their wing veins are a good way to identify the specie, it would be like finger prints in human beings.

Moths can see ultra-violet light.

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.

Pablo.
