For Tel Aviv native Liti Haramaty, moths – in their multitude of shapes and colors – are so much more than the dreaded creatures that inhabit rice sacks and nibble holes through a favorite shirt. "You show [people] a picture of a beautiful moth," she said. "They say, it’s a butterfly – you say, it’s not." Haramaty met with The Jerusalem Post earlier in the month at the Butterfly Park in East Brunswick, New Jersey, to discuss the second annual National Moth Week, a string of evenings celebrating the moth throughout the United States and across the world, from July 20 to 28…Despite her hobby documenting moths, Haramaty holds a day job as a researcher at the Rutgers University Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences.
