Dryocampa rubicunda by Komical Dryocampa rubicunda by Komical
This jewel [link] was roosting outside of the Gay Bar in Gay. There seemed to be plenty of moths fluttering about... I took photos of them at nearly evrey resteraunt we visited, but this one seemed to be the most charming of them all.

Along with fuzzy jumping spiders, fuzzy moths are automaticaly one of my favorite animals ... I wonder if there is such a thing as insect roleplay? If anyone is ever interested in peering deeper into this question, let me know.

WHUT!?! LOVE! It is so wonderful it looks fake. This is pretty much my new life motto, or something. This picture, not the sentence before that. 0.o After I thought that, anyway, my mind instantly went, "roleplay!?!?" So I'm witcha', girl. Let's do it. ^.^ Though you obviously get this character...I don't know where I'll get my inspiration without it. *Runs off with picture*

Heheh... I made a rosy maple moth character quite a while ago [link]

I'd show you the deviation but I have at least a hundred in storage ^^;

Are you really?! You'd be the first I've met :3 I'd be so pumped to bug roleplay with you... perhaps we could give it a shot?

Yeah, that'd be fun. :] I actually haven't got to roleplay with anyone about bugs in like... a year. :c You can note me with your IM details, or I could note you if you wanted, either way works. :B Which instant messenger do you use?

I can't believe moths come in this color set. o_o I've seen some really big and BRIGHT green ones where I live (Florida xP), but... This beats that. XD

Yeah, I was surprised too. It's a very striking insect, but it's hard to beleive that they can become pests to maple trees sometimes... :d

The lack of maple trees may explain why I have never seen one myself. xD!

The game is called "BUGGIN' The Tiny Game Of Big Adventures" by Todd Downing. It turns out that you have to purchase it online, but it's only a couple dollars (less than $10 I think). It's basically where you play an insect trying to survive many adventures in a world that is so much larger than you, the rules of the game are fairly simple compared to other RPGs. I haven't played it yet but it looks like a lot of fun :D

Wow, I've seen a lot of pretty moths though this one takes the cake for sure. I'd love to insect RP with ya if I had an insect character. XDD

That sounds pretty interesting too... Maybe I'll make one. Ooooh. I'll get back to you when I do. I gotta brainstorm. Get my mind in the world of the small. =)
