This is a picture of a moth, it is well known that moths are naturally and instinctively drawn to light. A moth being drawn to light is the exact definition of taxis, taxis is the behavioral response of an organism to go near or to something. It is a good response, it doesn’t just have to be moths and light, it can be a bear to the smell of meat, or birds migrating north for the winter. Taxis is seen all around the world in different ways with different animals.
