  1. Nice one! In case you haven't heard, last week we broke through the 5,000 moths and butterflies milestone:

    Quite the collection. But still just the beginning ;)

    1. No, I hadn't heard, that's great Ferdy. Should have a couple of others but they take identification, as you know. Just trying to identify a tegu lizard, nearly there. (;¬) Posted 13 days ago
      1. Don't be afraid to share moths without identification. I can ensure that at least Christine and I will have a serious look at it. Posted 13 days ago
