Er, what the hell is that?

Some kind of moth, would be my guess. Lovely photography!

David

A vision of loveliness? It’s listed only as “plush moth”. But it’s awfully cute. I’m feeling a distinct urge to pet it and make it little shoes.

You're both wrong. It's a member of the UKIP party in his natural habitat.

If that was actual size it could sit in your hand while you fed it sweets. BTW what do moths eat?

David

“BTW what do moths eat?”

Nectar, plant matter... cardigans? And if cheap science fiction films have taught me anything, they also feed on atomic radiation.

You are sure that's a macro aren't you? It has a distinctly predatory glint in it's eye.

I'm telling you, that's actual size. It probably eats mice.

David

On closer inspection, it does appear to be standing on a well-gnawed chicken drumstick. Or possibly the remains of a kitten.

Is it time for the Mothra song?

All hail Mothra. An offering must be made.
