They camouflage and wait to pounce when you least expect them. Their strange sporadic flight pattern leaves you never sure which direction they'll fly next. Those creepy antennae give me the willies, and they are just ugly!!

    It's a great photo, Saroj, but I do not care for flying bugs at all, especially erratic ones! I have seen many beautiful moths though and admire their beauty, as long as they do not fly at me!!!

    This just made me giggle. I love the caption you wrote, Saroj! I am not a bug fan, either. Although, I do have a lot of fun with plastic bugs! I guess that comes from being mom to a son!
