When we went to the bus stop on the way home this evening, we found we were sharing the bus shelter with someone else. This moth was solidly anchored to the glass wall of the shelter, possibly waiting out the bright part of the day until the light grew softer in the evening.
The moth was on the inside and the darker photograph is the top view while the second was taken from outside and reveals the moth’s lighter underside.
I couldn’t help feeling that the moth was vulnerable where she was (for some reason I thought the moth was female) but if I disturbed her, she might end up somewhere where she would be equally vulnerable or even more so. I decided to leave her there, hoping for the best. Not many people would notice the small patch on the glass or be interested in it.
After I had taken the second photo the bus came and I had to hurry to put away my camera. I wonder where she eventually went…
