Specimen type: Photograph
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.
