Metro Minute with Moths at Large

We shoo them outside when they get in the house and curse when they eat our clothes, but when was the last time you really noticed their unexpected colours and intricate patterns? Discover the hidden beauty of moths at the Moths at Large exhibit, which opens Friday at the Canadian Museum of Nature. Moths at Large presents 46 large-format prints of moths by Ottawa photographer Jim des Rivières. The pieces include two-sided prints where visitors can see both front and back details of the moth. The 45 species depicted were collected in the Ottawa region in places such as Gatineau Park, Mer Bleue and Dunrobin between 2002 and 2008.
