Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I was walking a path in our woods late afternoon. I saw MANY carpet moths flitting from place to place. All at once, I could see that a bug had landed on my glasses. I was amazed that it showed no sign of fear when I carefully took my glasses off to inspect. My myopia is horrible, so trying to hold my glasses up with one hand and look through a VERY blurry camera to get a sharp picture of a micro moth with the other was a hoot! I'm sure I looked very peculiar to any critters who may have witnessed the proceedings.
