Too funny! I look the same when I save sycamore leaves and Luna moths.
Are you saving the moths and feeding them sycamore leaves?
When I was in elementary school, I was a nerd before "nerd" was a word. I did a "science experiment" on the polyphemous moths that infested the birch trees in our front yard. Really infested! These large, almost neon green caterpillars were dropping out of the trees on our heads as we walked past. I collected the caterpillars. I observed them spinning their pupas. I watched a couple emerge from their cocoons and pump their wings to their full beauty. I watched several beat their wings to shreds on the bird cage before I let the last one fly free! I discovered all the eggs they laid in the bird cage, then the tiny little caterpillers hatched in my room and died all over the place.
My father says he hasn't seen a single polyphemous moth since that year. In the name of scientific inquiry, I wiped out an entire population of moths. I may have saved the birch trees, but wasn't there a compromise solution? When I learned, later in life, the concept of the effect of the observer on the observed phenomenon, I said, "Been there, done that. Be wary of the unintended consequences of well intentioned acts."
