Yes, I know that this isn’t the usual spelling but as a child one of the questions that went around schools and homes was simply this:
- What’s a mith? The answer was a female moth.
There must be very few people who were born in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties that haven’t heard that question.
I borrowed a 10 mega pixel camera just to see if it looked any sharper than my old 5 mega pixel one. Taking a close-up picture of this moth should help me to decide whether the 10 mega pixel one looks any clearer. I’m still not certain …
I am still trying to find out the name of the moth!
