I second Parag2! I used to be scared of moths, but since I joined the Project Noah, I can't wait to spot them myself (and put them on my hand)! :)

I love how you link all the spots together. I have to do that also with the caterpillars/moths or caterpillars/butterflies. Plus I really like the music in your video. Good choice. Love its freedom. :)

AHHHH! What a cute little friend you have. Truly amazing Uday! I like to have moths attach to my finger and hand also. This is so incredible and glad you were able to supplement the photos with a video. Let's all chant SOTD!!! Great job! I love moths too!
