Visitors

It's been all go at Casa Sunshine-Sausage-Moimoi. First Daddy came, then mum's parents and brother came, and then, came someone very special indeed. I would like to introduce you to Mr. Moth. He came inside caught up in a sheet mum had taken off the washing line.
Here you can see Fui trying to high five him. He must have thought that the moth carried treats (we will high five mum for treats).
When he realised that he was being watched, he tried to put on an innocent face. However, the laser beams gave him away. Mum knew he was excited! I love you little moth. Thankyou for coming to visit us.

Do not be fooled by his play dead look here. After a couple of minutes, Mum scooped Mr. Moth up and helped him back outside. She was amazed that though we had been chasing him around (and he flew into the ceiling fan twice!) there was no damage to his wings. He flew away into the moonlight.

That's a big bug. Probably too big to eat, so I'm glad he got helped outside again.

I love Mr Moth too... do you think he'd fly down and visit me? I'd try and be gentle.

How very nice of that moth to come and play with you for a while, and of your mum for helping it find its way back out again!

Your Friends,
Tommy, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan

Come and fly to my house Mr moth, and I will catch you or maybe you will crawl into my mums lamp where many a moth has gone to die.

Apologies to any moth lovers out there.

Mr. Moth was lucky he was visiting you and not us. I'm afraid he would have not survived his visit. You are very nice hosts to play with him and let him fly away!

Cool Moth!! We wish we would get a moth to play with. All we get are those darn crane flies, and Mom keeps saving them because she says they only live for 1 day, so we should be kind to them and let them live there life.

AM said...

ooohhhhh! I noticed my grammar error as soon as I hit send!
I meant "THEIR life".

Fin said...

He's HUGE!
