Long Exposure Pic Reveals Spazzy Nature Of Moth Flight

September 4, 2012

Moths (AKA ugly butterflies): they're spazzy. They're like the Geekologie Writer of the flying insect world: attracted to bright lights, always running into things, and will probably meet their untimely death from the shock of a bug-zapper. This is a 20-second exposure showing moth's spirally, insane flying patterns as they come to have sex with the light that photographer Steve Irvine just turned on. Have I ever had sex with a light before? No, but I have had sex with a star. It was the sun. Just kidding, it was a MOVIE star. I don't want to name any names but it was one of the raptors from Jurassic Park.

Thanks to JenL, who, just like any normal person, hates moths but loves butterflies.
