I kind of miss bugs. Not the mosquito or pudgy dung fly kind of bugs, na-ah, but the general sound of creatures buzzing around that makes you feel like things are…alive! If you know what I mean.
I found this flying minibeast on our garage door in the spring of 2011 and I still haven’t managed to identify this guy/gal (I dunno). Very frustrating indeed, though I’m sure it’s a very common species and I’m just a failure at pretending to be a field entomologist (I looked it up).
Update: The mystery has been solved, it is in fact a plume moth!
