Moth Hunters

WAFFLES:  Be very, very still, Ellie.

ELLIE:  Why, Mr. Waffles? What are being still for? 

WAFFLES:  We're on the hunt. 

ELLIE:  What are we hunting, Mr. Waffles? 

WAFFLES:  Careful, Ellie. No sudden moves. 

ELLIE:  It's a bird! It's a plane! It's, it's–


ELLIE:  What's a super moth, Mr. Waffles? 

WAFFLES:  It's the most giantest of the giant moths. 

ELLIE:  How giant is giantest?

WAFFLES:  Known to grab eight pound grey and white cats named Ellie and fly off with them.

ELLIE:  I don't know, Mr. Waffles. He looks pretty small to me. Looks like a bug with baby wings. 

About Today's Photos

It's officially summer moth season here in the mountains. In the evening they're super attracted to the lights and if we even slip out one of the doors, one usually zooms inside. Those that don't make it inside, hover close by. Waffles and Ellie LOVE moth hunting. The bathroom windows seem to attract more of these flying friends than any other windows. Lucky for the outside moths, there's a heavy duty screen keeping them safe and out of reach. In fact, that probably makes the hunt even more fun.


  1. We have those awful moths, too...millions of them. They even come in through our doggy doors. Then we have fun snapping at them!

    You two sure are very absorbed in your hunting project!

  2. Those would be SUPER BIG sky raisins!! LOL!! Enjoy your hunt, kids!! 💕💋💋💕

  3. We don't have many moths sneak inside, but we have sky raisins.

  4. Ooooh, I like it when moths or bugs come and zap at our windows at night. Provided we can have an open window at night.
