A moth attracted by the lights inside our home in Jansenville in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Lepidoptera is a large order of insects that includes moths and butterflies. This moth could be from the Lasiocampidae family of moths are also known as snout moths, eggars or lappet moths. The common name ‘snout moths’ comes from their unique protruding mouth parts of some species that resemble a large nose.

Daar is meer as sewe keer soveel motte as skoenlappers in die orde Lepidoptera. Die woord Lepidoptera is afgelei van twee Griekse woorde, lepis (’n skub) en pteron (’n vlerk). Dit is dikwels moeilik om ’n skoenlapper van ’n mot te onderskei.

My husband and I live in Jansenville in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. We both love nature, and therefore most of my subjects are the incredible wealth of fauna and flora in Southern Africa. I also write poetry in Afrikaans (one of the eleven official languages in South Africa) and often combine these poems with the photos I’ve taken. Thank you for stopping by!
