I recently visited a butterfly garden, and was shocked by the decidedly R-rated display of wantonness. Under every leaf, exhibitionist butterflies and moths were getting it on… It was possibly the best date of all times. Here are a few of my favorite voyeur shots for your Bug Love section, hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy your site!
Thank you for your fabulous letter and lascivious images. We are especially intrigued with your Atlas Moth orgy.
The exhibit butterflies are all hatched in the garden. For the Atlas moths, the cocoons are glued to ropes dangling from the ceiling in a dark little cave near a waterfall. The moths seem to like to cluster in that area, and many were pairing off right on top of their former husks.
