A Talking Moth

You can’t read my mind though you think you can. My eye won’t tell the truth. You can come back a hundred times, take a thousand micro shots, and write post after post, but these will only reflect your stodgy imaginations.

I pose to fool you, and you are too smart to tell my life but that is actually your own interpretation. You feel so proud to tell the whole world.

You may come to find my cousin next week; you can write again, only your friends, in turn, to be fooled.

Rainfield, have you gone insane by now?

OK, is it fooling us, or is it only foolish?

to fool or to be fooled, that's the question:) But I do like your pics, stunning as always!

With so many hiking trips into the woods, Rainfield can interpret any creature's thoughts. Only the moth is fooled if he thinks otherwise.

He is like my rhino moth. He has a little horn.

I never knew moths and women thought the same way.... :)

Moths are less attractive than butterflies. They tend to have dull-coloured wings.

I didn't realize you were a mind reader as well as a photographer and philosopher.

To fool or to be fooled, that's the question.

But it only involves man and insect.

I have probably been fooled by the talking moth and his relatives all along. I don't mind. ;)

I think we are all fooled and continue to fool at times, not to mention insane :D Rainfield, you are capturing these critters so well I am really impressed. Love these shots

Look at the eye, it must be talking.

(But I rather not to imagine what it is talking about).

I miss big moth as big as my palm at my kampung Kiulu, Sabah.

Frieda said...

Insane or not, I like your attempts at reading the minds of insects :-)
The pictures are beautiful, as always...

Great captures and another great post. I think we are all fooled at times.

Icy BC said...

Just stopping by to see if the moth talks to me this time..

Have a wonderful weekend!
