Moth's, spiders, and bugs in general.

So life here at camp has forced me into a lot of reflective periods. My latest one has been about the moth. I know, random, but there are a ton of these suckers here. Most specifically, Gypsy (maybe) moths. They are beautiful! There are a lot of seriously gnarly spiders here (which I hate by the way, but we pretty much invaded their habitat so I fell a little more guilty about killing them--not that it stops me--but only if they are in my face or creeping me out!)

Anywho--Moth's--There are so many here and the other day I found my self studying them. They just come and land on you, on your computer, the piano, etc. So this beautiful moth, supposedly called the gypsy moth. It is huge and amazing. So they have furry bodies--and I was wondering about their life span and even their function in life. I have no idea what moth's are for. But the other day I saw a gypsy moth and someone had torn it's wing off and so it was dying and I started crying. I was kind of surprised by this since you know, they are a bug, but as I thought more about it, moth's are actually kind of cool.

It might just be a sign that I have way to much time on my hands because I have literally been comtemplating the life of a moth. I know, but there are so many bugs here and Moth's seem to be the coolest. Anyway, I just looked at google and they are just called green moth, whatever. They are gorgeous. I felt really bad for all these moths who keep getting killed because peopel are dumb. I think maybe I need to go into like animal rights. Maybe it is bad, but I can handle people getting injured etc, over animals. I know, but aniamls are helpless. They don't deserve it...except spiders are other biting insects. hate them!

kill the spiders!
Speaking of gypsies and the 4th of July, a whole gang of them came around the corner as I was taking a self-timer photo of myself on Americka Street and tried to steal my camera from me. It was in their hand twice as I kept a firm grip. While I was fighting with them thinking that if I just took a dang photo with them like they wanted they would leave, another stole 700 Kc from my bag. Great day. Freakin gypsies...whatever form you come in.
