  1. Amazing picture Joyce. I didn’t realise moths were hairy! That probably sounds stupid I know. I used to have a phobia about moths, but this one looks quite friendly.

  2. Well they aren’t all hairy like this one but they certainly won’t hurt you. I think moths are just a bit batty. There was a beautiful, massive, ginger coloured one in my kitchen this week that dive-bombed into the sink full of water. Twice I rescued it and for a while it stayed on my hand, then it went off in a frenzy never to be seen again. I love moths and I hope you have lost your phobia. x
