Intimidation By Moth

Uploaded: August 26, 2010


I usually find insects, & such fascinating; but there was something creepy about this moth. If I didn't know better, I'd swear this guy was trying to intimidate me, so I'd let him in my house - lol! No matter what I did, he wouldn't leave my window; so I did what any photographer would do - ran for the camera - lol! Slight crop, & levels adjustment.

Is rather creepy, the way he's looking so intently in...something about those eyes... :) Well, you caught those eyes and the rest of this fella perfectly and I have to admit despite being an aficionado of 6-8 legged critters, that look would intimidate me too! Good work and good thinking, Pamela - never pass up a photo op! :) (Oooo, your weather sounds heavenly - an OH autumn sky!! BIG case of sudden homesickness coming on!) #8865495
