Moths

The Italian for butterfly is ‘farfalla‘, one of my favourite words. To say ‘moth’ you just add ‘di notte‘ – of the night!

Last night Clive pointed out to me that moths were crowding onto the outside of the window, like they do in the warmer weather.

We have to be careful not to let them in if we go outside because it’s not a nice experience to have a moth flap against your face in the night.

I found this Emperor Moth, and the drab one in front of it, already dead.

But this dark and beautifully patterned moth was on the windowsill, very much alive.

Alive (and smaller than the other 2)
