A right-hand shot.. taken while I tried to keep a grip on the spider web these two helpless moths had become trapped in.. Although the moth on top had some serious wing damage from flailing about trying to get free, he recovered and later flew off. The one on the bottom was okay too.

Green Lattice Moths
also known as the Police Car Moth

Thank you Juanita Vivas for the spotlight! That is much appreciated!!

    It's a tough world out. Sometimes for the moth; sometimes for the spider.

    The moth's are beautiful and if I had to choose between the survival of a spider and a moth, my choice would be the moth as they don't bite:)) Love this and will cast my vote.
