Hello Mijat! Your moths spottings are beautiful! Would you like to register a National Moth Week event? The registration form is in the link below, and if it is just you, that's perfectly okay! You can make an event private if you would like the event to be only you, or you could make it public and invite some friends! I do not think Macedonia is on the National Moth Week map yet, although we would love to have you!
