Acrolophus plumifrontella, 15 July 2013

Acrolophus plumifrontella, the Eastern grass tubeworm moth;
Lowndes county, Georgia (15 July 2013).

When I returned to the American southeast after four years in Alaska, I found myself transfixed by the moths of southern Georgia. Though I’ve always liked them, I learned to look more closely. What I found was an array of biodiversity, texture, and patterning. They may be small, but if you slow down, zoom in, and look closely, you’ll see remarkable intrigue and uniqueness. Truly, I adore moths. How many Eastern grass tubeworm moths did I walk by before learning to look more closely?
