No problem, if I have a beetle spotting and there's a pin in the photo, is that not allowed even if it died of natural causes?

I'm sorry, I must have missed that spotting.

I assume one of the Rangers deleted my beetle spotting; not sure why because I found it dead...do you not approve of the pin?

No problem! I was just thinking it would be extremely uncommon to see one in February. July 19-27 was last year's dates and this year's dates are the 18-26.

Thanks! In sorry about the date; I had no real idea as to when National Moth Week was, I saw some spottings coming up for and assumed it was this week.

Lovely, Joshua! Did you spot this today? If not, I think you might need to change your date. National Moth Week is in July. Thanks!
