Peek-a-boo With A Moth

Have you ever had that feeling that you were being watched? I’m often amused by the reaction of wildlife when the human walks into their domain as if he owns the place. I’ve noticed that animals seem to go out of their ways to watch the people. The little moth in the feature image it only wondered out of her hiding place in broad daylight but actually landed in font of my lens and leaned out from the blade of grass as if to say “peek-a-boo!”. We expect our pets to have a personality and it’s not surprising to see larger mammals exhibit playfulness but I never expected that from an insect. She did her little peeking routine for me a few more times and then fluttered back into the trees. I hope my next excursion into nature is just as fruitful.

  1. That is awesome and cute! When I was a teenager I came across a tarantula and was startled at coming upon it. I had mixed emotions of surprise, fear, horror at its hairness but, then our eyes locked. It was so weird, I had never been this close to one and we just stared at each other waiting to see what the other would do. It had big eyes and it was kinda gross, then I realized I have big eyes too lol. We scrutinized each other as I slowly backed away from it our eyes never leaving each other until I was far away enough to turn and run lol. True story πŸ˜‚
