  1. Wonderful! When you place them on flowers do they not fly away because they're sluggish during the day?

  2. Species, and to some extent, individuals, vary. Most will stay still - some needing to shake their wings for a while to warm up before flying; others will crawl away to find somewhere to hide. You can, however, guarantee that one of the most interesting-looking ones will be out of the trap and over the rooftops before you've even had a chance to identify it.

  3. You have quite a variety! They are lovely!! I have just recently started looking closer at moths.

  4. great post thanks
