I spend a LOT of time complaining about the bugs on my blog – the ten-inch centipedes, the cockroaches the size of Bic lighters, the spiders the size of MY FACE that like to build webs across my bedroom doorway just to make my mornings a little harder. But there are cool bugs, too. Don’t worry: this post contains nothing scary. Just some lovely fluttery things.

This large, gorgeous moth was on my bathroom wall. Check out the subtle patterns on the wings.

Slightly blurry pic, but another lovely moth.

For you diurnal Lepidoptera lovers, here’s a butterfly from Western Province drinking from a puddle.
