Here, seen through a window, is a very hairy moth.
The bigger the moth, the more the hairs, the larger the load of pollen it carries from flower to flower.
Aoteaora/New Zealand is a land of moths, so in Flight of Pollen there’s three: large hebe looper; zebra lichen; and cabbage tree.
All pick up and drop off pollen during the night.
As a child, as the evenings darkened at Lake Wakitipu, we’d turn on the lights and lamps. Then in would come giant moths who’d circle the light, never ceasing as long as the light was on.
Who knew they were essential pollinators!?
