Scientific names are necessary, but...

February 27, 2009

If you heard something being called “Ourapteryx clara, Geometridae”, would you ever associate it with this ?

Such a beauty, with an Orrible name….

I will never be a botanist, zoologist, lepidopterist, or any other ist. I would call that the star moth and enjoy its beauty…

Well, I realize others need to have a unique name to id it by, but that’s NOT what I would like to call it!
