Fur Coats

Tow different alpine moths each wearing fur coats forage up high in the mountains of central Colorado.

Photographed in early September.

Just an hour after posting this I came across a news story describing the decline of insects by 75% in Germany. I am sure this is happening globally to varying decrees. This sixth extinction caused by our human species will have consequences and is affecting life big and small. A link to the study is provided below:
