Very creative idea for a mother's day card and a lovely image; I just hope they weren't euthanized into 'cooperation'.

Haha yes! I will put this spotting as the icon now. It will remain for a week until next sunday when the next favorite will be selected.

seto2112 3 years ago

You choose whichever one you like best. :3 I'm not picky. Of what I've gotten to post so far-the Rosys are my favorite photo for looks. Might make a neat icon. Just thinking-which I should stop doing. LOL!

Then would you like me to make the Twilight Moth the mission's icon? Or would you like to use your what you think is you best photo?

seto2112 3 years ago

Oh Hi! That's cool-but I don't think I've entered my favorite spotting yet-I have about 1000 more spottings to enter. But if you want one of this-I guess this one would be okay. Still my favorite spotting isn't my best photo-my fav spotting is the Twilight Moth-cos it's so rare.

Pretty as a flower.

I have a lot like that-them just sitting there. I can take this out if you like. This was a rarity that I'd do this.

A very innovative idea & how awesome to find 4 of this lovely moth!
We do however prefer to see wildlife exhibiting natural behavior in their natural habitat wherever possible.

seto2112 3 years ago

Still not quite sure how to replay here-I'm new :3 No- that's not natural behavior-I got them together to make a Moth-er's Day Card. They weren't overly co-operative. :3
